We are all striving to greatness. Evolving, if you will, into better versions of ourselves day by day. The more I learn about God, the closer I draw to him, the sweeter I become. And, this is simply because I am clinging onto his goodness not my own strength.
However, I think it is important, while we are striving for more fulfillment and depth in our Creator God, to love where we are in the moment. We need to love every aspect of our lives.
“Be in love with your life, every detail of it.” – Jack Kerouac
Contentment is such a hard concept to truly grasp. But Beauties, you are fully complete in Christ and he stands over your charming braided head with a plentiful bucket of provision and blessings.
Although you obviously want to become the best version of yourself possible, your Savior recklessly loves you right where you are at. Whether it is picking up the pieces of a broken relationship, making a move into another job, figuring out where you want to go in life next, quitting a riddling addiction, striving to look and eat healthier or simply sifting through your passions and interests. He loves you.
Now it’s your turn to love you and love where you are at. Don’t let that thief, comparison, steal your joy. God has you where you are – for a reason. Trust him. Trust his reasoning. He is good and perfect – and so is his will!
