It can be easy to fall into the trap of saying the all too popular phrase, “The grass is alway greener on the other side.” At times we may crave something else or something new. We think that if we just had that one thing, everything would be better. However, that is typically not the case. In fact, some of the times that we actually receive the one thing that we wanted, we discover that we were better off without it in the first place. Why? Most of the times it is because we simply did not need that one thing. Here is a sure thing, God knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows our deepest desires and our deepest needs. God wants us to find joy in our relationship with Him. He wants us to be content with what He has given us. Please don't misunderstand. It is not wrong for us to want certain things or to visit other places. However, it is dangerous when we think that other things will make it all better or that another place would be the key to our happiness. In the wise words of Justin Bieber, "The grass ain't always greener on the other side, it's green where you water it." May we all work on being content with what we have, knowing that God will provide everything we need!
Lots of love,
