This is it we’re at the end of the road of our 10 Days Unplugged series. And I don’t know about you but I’m thankful to be at the end of it. It has given me a lot to think about from my own personal point of view in my life, and I hope it has given you the same.
I saved the best for last I suppose. And that is the unplugging of discontentment from our lives. This one we struggle with our whole life no matter how old you may be. Often we think that only kids are discontented, but in reality our discontentment merely changes and grows with age.
Discontentment in our lives can be emotional, physical, relational, and even spiritual. Any time we’re not satisfied with what’s going on because it’s not going our way. So here are three ways to unplug discontentment from our lives.
Attitude of gratitude
Having an attitude of gratitude is the first and foremost key in being content in life. No matter what is going on in your life taking time to be grateful for what God has given you will go a long way. It changes how you look at situations, and effects how you react to said situations. And it’s an attitude you have to choose to have everyday.
Unplugging the discontentment also requires you to trust God completely in every part of your life. He wants to provide for you, but the only way He can is if you allow Him to provide for you. This means giving up control of every aspect of your life to Him.
Let it go
A final thing that you need to do is let it go. What ever you’re discontent with in your life you just need to let it go. We can’t take whatever it is to the grave. Be thankful that it has come into your life whether it’s good or bad and move on. Don’t keep letting it hold you back from bigger things that God wants to show and give you.
Discontentment ultimately is our choice. We choose to continue to be discontent or we can choose to be satisfied with God is doing in our lives and trust that He has it all under control. Plain an simple.
