It is an understandable to be disappointed once but it is foolish to be
disappointed every time about the same thing over and over again.
The Bible advises us to live our life in wisdom and understanding. Do you
remember the social and economic status you are in was coveted by you for
long just a few years ago?
You have got it now. But you are not satisfied yet as your focus have
been shifted to a higher one. That is not bad by itself but you have to
know from experience that what you are craving for doesn't do all the work
and it is going to disappoint you once again.
Let me explain myself.
Few years or months ago the privilege you are in was far from you that you
sometimes doubted in your mind weather you achieve it one day or not. But
you have achieved it.
When you achieved it, your focus is already shifted to the higher
achievement. And you no longer appreciate it. You are not enjoying it.
Your mind is fully captivated in the achievement to come.
That means you didn't get the last achievement as satisfactory as you
thought it to be.
That means you had had a miss-estimation about your achievement in terms
of what it can and can’t do.
That also means that you exaggerated your achievement to be which isn't.
If you have been satisfied, you shouldn't crave for the other
achievements forgetting altogether about the last achievement you once
There must be a problem some where some how. There must be something wrong.
I see the problem isn't in the craving or in the achieving. The problem is
in the miss estimation of the accomplishment. We had the misestimating
about the achievement as to what it can and it can’t do in life.
We exaggerated the achievements to be all powerful ones. But they aren’t.
We exaggerated then as all doing and satisfactorily. They have their limit
what they can and they can’t do in life.
Lets give their due place in life nothing more. And focus on and glory in
God who does everything for us.
Thus says the LORD: "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the
mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the
LORD, exercising loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the
earth. For in these I delight," says the LORD. Jer. 9:23, 24
