The definition of "discontent" is...a restless desire or craving for something one does not have.  Do you ever have those feelings?  Well, I do and I am not at all proud of it.  I desire to be content with what God has given me and where He has placed me.  The quote below makes a lot of sense to me. 

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”  ~Greek philosopher, BC 341-270

Yes, what I now have is something I prayed and hoped for.  Actually, what I now have is different than how I pictured it, but in reality it is better than what I hoped for.  The Lord has a way of making our dreams come true in a way that we never imagined possible.

The future looms ahead and other dreams beckon to me.  I get excited, but I need to wait.  As I wait I need to enjoy where I am.  The Lord does not move us on so quickly that we do not get to stop to smell the flowers.  As you continue to dream and hope for the future remember these words...

"The vision is yet for the appointed time...Though it tarries, wait for it, for it will certainly come, it will not delay.  ~Habakkuk 2:3

Even if we are in a place that is hard.  A place we never imagined we would be, fear not for the Lord is there.  He will never leave you nor forsake you.  He is right by your side and even in the midst of the trial you will find blessing because He is absolutely amazing.  And this too will pass and as always the future lies ahead with hopes and dreams.  Here is a verse to comfort your soul:

"Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage.  Yes, wait for the Lord.  ~Psalm 27:14
