Is the grass always greener...?

So last night Ryan and I were catching up while dinner cooked and among this weeks topic the theme (as he pointed out) did seem to be "the grass always seems greener".

Is it really? If so why do we do this to ourselves over and over again!!?? Why do we in the midst of life think "I will be happy when this or that happens, or when I have this or that...etc."

With these thoughts still on my heart this morning I opened up my daily devotional. Here is what it read:

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV).

Why do we constantly attempt to make our own happiness...we cannot make ourselves happy people. We must leave that up to the God that created us. Lean on Him, follow his lead, His guidance and you will find happiness. I promise.
Now, it is time for me to take what I wrote and remember it today...walk in it today...
