I want to share with you a word a friend of mine spoke to me as I sat with her over tea this past week. It has really resonated with me as we talked about fear and how one of the reasons we live in fear could be us racing always ahead of God and ourselves. Looking for something that is not in this present moment. Missing the moment and the adventure of discovering God during the moment of our storms. Always being “out there somewhere.” It’s a simple yet profound few words: “Thank Him and be content in the place in which He has me. In doing that, He will give me more.” I confess that I am probably not easily “satisfied in Him” because I am too busy “looking beyond” what He has and is giving me, thus missing Him in my rush to get “there” — wherever “there” is.
