A Pause In The Pursuit

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Why is it so hard for us to enjoy the blessings God puts in our life? Why is it that you can dream and scheme and work like crazy to pursue something that you want, and then as soon as you get it, you start looking for the
next, better thing? Is this a cycle that we are doomed to repeat, or is it possible to learn to enjoy this life God has given us?

These questions are incredible, because our worship of God is built on the foundation of gratitude, and gratitude grows out of an appreciation of God’s gifts. That means that the ability to enjoy God’s gifts is more than a nice skill for a meaningful life. It is a spiritual issue – one that interests God very much.
