Designed for Love

An old friend once asked me a simple yet intriguing question, "Is being unhappy considered discontentment or a lack of gratitude?"

The question seemed a bit awkward at first glance but in retrospect, I realised that the awkwardness matched the subject at hand perfectly: the uncanny elusiveness of human happiness.

In an instant, I texted her this answer with incredibly little thought: "A pen is happy only when used as a pen to write. An eagle is happy only when soaring high. There's your answer."

I guess the Holy Spirit must be guiding me...

"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." (John 15:12)

"If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing." (1 Corinthians 13:2)

"No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." (1 John 4:12)

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)

discontent requires change whereas lack of gratitude requires....gratitude :lol: not change.
Sometimes it's hard to realize that we are a pen that's suppose to be happy writing or an eagle swimming in the sea.
