Sometimes I have thoughts that I need certain things in life to make me truly happy.
I read this post by Shauna Niequist and it really made me think about what I do so often without really thinking about it.
I find myself putting so much pressure on certain things,
that I feel if they happen then my life will be perfect, like . . .
I'll be happy when I'm get pregnant.
I'll be happy when Chris gets a job that pays more money and allows him to not travel.
I'll be happy if I feel more confident in how I look or in my abilities.
By thinking these things I am saying that God and the place where he has me in life is not enough.
I think God does put certain desires in our hearts, but I think the problem is when I think I need that answer in order to be happy.
My happiness and joy should not be resting in these things but in the fact that I have a God that loves me and knows my every need and will fill my life with exactly what I need in His timing.
I want Him to be enough to make me filled with joy.
