Contentment is a finish line

Contentment is an elusive goal. Once the finish line is crossed, one sees that it was only the halfway point, and that the real finish line is still ahead.

No distance is far enough that I am content to stop. I am never satisfied with the food I eat. My computer and phone do not fulfill me.

The only thing that can stop this rat race is the One who made me.

My desire is infinite; His fulfillment is infinite.

God, please change my desire from these earthly things to You. When I do that, the rat race stops, and I am content in You.
Thank you, God.

Be still, and know that I am God”
Psalm 46:10

About Me

I'm a high school student, a teen, who seeks to follow God with everything he has. I've got so many questions and so often I feel like I'm hitting a wall in my beliefs, my actions, and my creativity. And that's OK.

Being surrendered is more of a process than a destination. I'm not perfect by any means, and I struggle a lot. But the daily act of "presenting my body as a living sacrifice," fully surrendered to the will of my King, is what will get me through.
