Day 15: A moment you’ve felt satisfied with your life
I’ve had this open all day and couldn’t really come up with an answer.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 says:
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.
I make an effort constantly to be true to this passage. I try always to be thankful and constantly pray. What this does, in effect, is not make me unsatisfied — which is why I don’t think I can come up with a moment of satisfaction. I want very much to be in God’s will, whether that makes me satisfied personally or not.
I realize this is a non-answer. I just can’t think of a moment I was “satisfied” with my life.
At this moment in time, sitting here right now next to my husband (who happens to not be in Afghanistan) I think I can come up with one answer.
On August 14th, Gregg came home permanently from Afghanistan. We started a “normal” life, he’s working a “normal” job. My marriage is strong, my kids are healthy and well behaved, my church is amazing, my books are being released, it’s almost time to plant the garden, our 1-year-old puppy is almost completely house broken…at this moment in time, I’m quite satisfied with my life.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
