RomCom

RomCom

Last night I watched a romantic comedy, a romcom. Yes, I actually tend to like them because they leave you feeling pleasantly satisfied that all worked out well. As I quietly pondered why romcoms evoke such emotions, it occurred to me that life is meant to be similar. If we put our faith in God, He will make everything work out—that is the promise and the ultimate delight. What joy we can have through Him as we live with this hope. And just like the romcom, we will live happily ever after.

Satisfaction

When we get what we want, we have that feeling of being satisfied. But what about when things don’t go as we would wish? It seems that we often let our circumstances define our satisfaction, which impacts our level of happiness. Perhaps we should take a different perspective and just appreciate and be satisfied with what we have in any situation. That contentment may be very satisfying after all and lead to deeper joy.
