You know what makes it really hard to be content with your life? Feeling like your dreams are coming true for everyone but you. Can I get an amen?
At one point or another, you’ve probably experienced those moments when the very things you’ve been hoping, working, and praying for seem to work out seamlessly for everyone else while you’re left facing a brick wall.
Just days after your heart gets broken, your best friend gets engaged. Hours after your kid gets into big trouble, your neighbor posts about their kid’s big accomplishment on Facebook. Or just weeks after you get turned down for your dream job, your sister gets a huge promotion.
But what do you do in these situations, when it seems like the thing you most desire in the world is happening for others, but not for you? How do you handle the emotions of anger or jealousy that come up? And what do you do when your faith feels weak, and you’re not sure if your dream will ever come true at all?
Hint: Things like finding a spouse, having a family, or building a fulfilling career aren’t as simple as picking something off the Target shelf, but you can still live a life of contentment even when your dream feels far away.
