Do you ever feel stuck, dry of joy, just going through the motions of mundane life, day after day, wondering when the cycle will ever end?
Sometimes I do too.
Last week, I got the chance to write for my college’s student life blog. As much as the post applies directly to Lumerit students — (Lumerit is an accelerated distance learning program for people pursuing a college degree) — I’ve been learning a lot about what contentment means.
Not just as a student, no — as a person, a Christian, a girl trying to make her way in the world.
Here’s an excerpt from the post, and a peep into my current musings on the subject:
