“Was it that I felt there was never enough? Was this another way I wasn’t satisfied with my portion, with my bread? Lord, fill my heart with You. Help me to be content.”
Why does this line sound so familiar? Why is it difficult to be content with what we have been given? During these days of pandemic, I have wondered so many times why I struggle to be content with the blessings. I have never been hungry. I have never gone without toilet paper. I have not struggled with the necessities of life, but I have felt discontent with life so often. This chapter talks about the connection between the feeling of scarcity and fear. Both have been talked about continually in our world during the past year. It is hard to be content when we are afraid, we will never know the abundance of connection again. Will we ever be full again…have we ever not been full?
