Change It

"The way things are is not the way things have to be.Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove

Are you discontent? Honestly, I know very few people who are completely content in every facet of their
lives. We all have times when we are dissatisfied with our job status, the health of our relationships, where our previous life decisions have led us, the perceived slights we feel from others, and the stability of our spiritual life. When we feel this discontent we are left with two obvious choices: fall into a predictable pattern of complaint-driven living or change something to make a difference in our lives. 
We can choose to accept an unpleasant current reality and by our bitter inaction ensure it's longevity. We can also decide to recognize the temporary nature of our present status and actively work in ways that reveal our trust in God's ability to transform us and our circumstances. 

We either resign ourselves to unhappiness or resolve to do something about it.
