Dissatisfied Contentment

Have you ever been “wrecked?”  I mean, have you ever arrived at the place where tears replaced your eyes?  I have been there several times in my life.  I have been having a lot of those lately.  Today, my prayer is that God would wreck my heart for what wrecks his and that he would replace my dreams for His.

I think we all come to a place of dissatisfaction with life.  Not because we don’t value or appreciate our lives, but that we want so much more.  Every area of our lives must be somewhat dissatisfied!  I want more of God.  I want to have more love for my wife with each passing day.  I want more for my kids than I had.  I want to see our church do more than the average church.

I live in a state of dissatisfied contentment.  What does that mean?  It simply means that even though I am happy with where you are you are still driven to more.  That’s how God wired us – or at least me.  We must be satisfied with Jesus and Him alone – but we can never be satisfied with “average” or “status quo.”
