Desiring Contentment

Praying contentment this morning and freedom from dissatisfaction.  Reflecting on Romans 8:25-28.
25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.28 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.
  In my bible this morning it says, "god weaves everything together for good. The "good" in this context does not refer to earthly comfort but conformity to Christ, closer fellowship with God, bearing good fruit for the kingdom, and final glorification. ". I know I lean on earthly comfort often. I'm begging/praying for a heart change. I'm ready.
