Excuse us while we try to blend in 🌼🌸
the other day i was thinking about just how easily comparison comes to us. josh and i were driving back from a beautiful evening by the water with family and i remember looking down at my engagement ring and feeling like i missed my old one (which i lost years ago - the one i have now was an affordable replacement that looks similar, but it's not the same). but in that moment, i remember catching myself and thinking, "chelsea. really? what reason do you have to wish for anything? really." and the honest to goodness truth is, i don't.
in this very moment, my family has everything they need. my kids are learning more about jesus all the time and it makes my heart so full. and would a different ring or newer car or the thing that i saved on ig change any of that?
not one bit.
for those of you who are like me and struggle with contentedness or always looking for "the next thing," i totally get how hard it can be to keep your heart in check. what's helped me is remembering that we deserve nothing, we're given everything, and we have everything we need through jesus.
