Including Christ In the Details

As I think about the past few weeks and reflect on everything that is being done in my heart, I realize that I struggle with being content. As human beings, we want more. Many use the term, "I'll be happy when..". For me personally, this term looks a lot like, "I will be happy once I have a solid community", but once that solid community comes it turns into, "I will be happy once I am in a relationship". My point is there is always something, because that is just the way we are wired, always seeking more.

Tonight, a specific verse is weighing on my heart, this is Psalm 139:8, "If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there." This just serves as a reminder to me that in all of the details God is there. We are not alone when we do not feel content. We are not alone when we are seeking more than we actually need. 

For now, I need to lay down the "I will be happy when..." because I do not want to miss out on all of the things to be happy with right now. For me, knowing that God is in every single bit of it eases my heart and brings a entirely new perspective on this new season of life.
