….be content with what you have… Hebrews 13:5

 

Be content. Contentment isn’t going to descend from on high and scatter these regrets and longings. You have to choose it, and fight anything and everything contrary to contentment. But it’s hard. It’s hard to be content with what I got because I can’t help thinking what if…If only… I should have….

What a precarious place to be, discontentment.
