Watching this documentary was good for my soul. It helped me try to put myself in Kara’s shoes. How would I spend the last two years of my life on earth if I knew the end was near? Why am I acting like I have an infinite amount of time when I don’t know what the future holds? Sometimes we need to be reminded of our mortality.
Our fast-paced American lives tell us to work harder, do more, enroll our kids in one more activity, and say “yes” to one more volunteer request. We’re often running on autopilot, without leaving time to process how we’re actually living. Do we share long embraces and lingering kisses with our spouse, or are we just ships passing in the night?
I really enjoyed this conversation with The Women Encouraged Podcast. There’s a temptation to think the grass is greener on the other side, and we can easily slip into a “what-if” mentality. Yet the gospel provides truth and hope to battle our discontentment.
I loved chatting with Hunter Beless on fighting for contentment in a fallen world. We talked about everything from why we struggle with contentment to how to battle discontent with the promises of God's Word. And I got to share why I love dating my husband:) I hope you are encouraged through our conversation!
