Discontent drives you to want more and more …

“Discontent drives you to want more and more, to expect more and more, and to develop a spirit of disappointment both with your own life and with God — which is death to your soul.
“Lust in final form spends everything
To purchase headstones.
All passions die in graveyards.”(“A Symphony in Sand,” quoted in Christianity Today Magazine, 24 September 1990, “Reflections,” p.41.)
Fix your eyes again on your blessed Jesus. He is full of grace and goodness; trust Him. Be satisfied. Be thankful.”

-from p.46 of “Fix Your Eyes On Jesus” by Anne Ortlund.
