I am here...

I am a simple person. I don't have a lot, but I have more than I need. I know that. And yet, my thoughts start to wander and I sometimes long for what the rest of the world has. Tonight those thoughts started to creep back into my heart as I was driving around. And in the midst of my thoughts, I felt God quiet my heart and told me to be still and to wait. For what, I don't know...but I did get quiet. And in the "quiet" I noticed my radio playing a song I had never heard before. These were the words:

Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're here not there
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
-One Republic

Man, that line about wondering why I am here and not "there" really got to me....What exactly is "there"? I'm sure that the people that are "there" wish they were somewhere else too. I need to learn to be happy in the "here", because when you break it down, "here" is wonderful, and it is more than I deserve.

The line that caught my attention is "get what's fair." What if we all got what was truly fair? What we really deserved? What a reminder to be grateful for my meager blessings and God's mercy.
