God is the one who brought us where we are today. And the God who led us here is good, kind, and let’s not forget, purposeful. Everything he does in our lives, everywhere he leads us, is designed to fulfill his primary intention for us, which is to know him better. Contentment does not lie around the next corner. It is not waiting for us on the other side of today’s difficulty, nor is it lost with yesterday. Contentment is where God is, and God is with us today.

-Lydia Brownback, Contentment

    I know you posted this awhile ago, but I’m just now getting around to catching up on blog reading.

    You have no idea how much I needed to read that quote just now. No idea. Thanks. I’m totally writing that down and putting it somewhere where I’ll see it all the time. 🙂
