Personal Displeasure

There are many things that have been weighting down my heart over these past several months. I am excited to see how God is working in my life, and the life of my family. Yet, soberly, I realize there is much to be done. I read this quote from St. Augustine this morning and it was a great encouragement to me:

If you would attain to what you are not yet, you must always be displeased by what you are. For where you are pleased with yourself there you have remained. Keep adding, keep walking, keep advancing.
