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 who seeks understanding. There are so many things in life that I would like to understand, but it’s hard.

  • How can I live a good life?
  • How can I make people like me?
  • How can I draw close to God?
  • What should I do after high school?

I call myself “Surrendered,” but to be surrendered is more of a process than a destination. I’m not perfect by any means, and I struggle a lot. Nevertheless, I place my hope in God, and trust that he will give me the answers.
