I can’t get no satisfaction!

Why as humans are we never satisfied?

I met an amazing guy, who has been my rock through some of the hardest events in my life and I take him for granted. He is not the most confident and certainly doesn’t like to take charge, but he is always there for me.

The problem I have is that I expected so much from my future husband.

I prayed most nights when I got to a certain age about meeting my future husband and him being someone that is very focused on God. God clearly didn’t hear me, as my boyfriend is as far away from God as I could imagine.

When we ask God for things, relationships or health we expect that God would honour that, but what happens when what we ask for is so far from what we imagined? We are not satisfied!

My boyfriend may not be a Believer in God, but he respects that I am, but I fear the day (if ever it happens) that marriage is on the cards. Not because I don’t like my boyfriend, but because he is not what I expected. I am not satisfied with who God has given me.

I say God has given him to me because I believe as a ‘Believer’ that God still has control even when we stray from the path God has set for us. I was never a non-Believer so the luxury of paving my own way was never an option.

I believe that once you have chosen Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, God is always in control even when you mess up. He will guide you back to the path that He has set for you, because you are now one of His children.

I know that I am human and that brings me back to my initial question, why are we not satisfied? I guess because we are told to expect more or society (media) paints an image of what life is supposed to be and if we don’t feel that our life imitates it, then we feel like failures.

I hope I can break my thinking and accept that life is what we make it. There is so much more to life than fitting a mould created by those trying to keep us numb.

Our minds are expansive and we don’t fully utilise our potential because we are made to feel like we need to fill our lives in a consumeristic manner. We are always trying to find what makes us unique, but fail to do so because of all the distractions.

I plan to change myself for the better by seeking more meaning from life, than to just fit a mould!
