Do you ever find yourself buying something you really don’t need?
Maybe it’s on sale. Maybe not.
In a moment of weakness, do you ever simply declared, “I deserve this. Yes I do … I can’t have it all, but I can have THIS … so there, I will … and I’ll be happier once it’s mine.”
The world is quick to say, “You can have it all!” but it leaves us with empty promises. Every. Single. Time.
We fall for this myth then spend our time planning and buying; comparing and scheming, all to get what we want – when we want it.
With all that pursuing, we avoid asking a key question:
What will chasing this dream of having it all actually cost me?
Let me save you some time by answering that question: –> a lot. a whole lot.

I’ve discovered that the exhausting pursuit of this world’s definition for having it all only leaves a person with deep cravings of wanting more. Cravings laced with discontentment. Cravings that can never be fully satisfied.
Contentment is not found in acquiring more things, living in a nicer house, having a stellar job, bringing home a bigger paycheck, marrying Mr Right (or Mrs. Right, for the few anonymous guys reading this post) or having a large following on social media.
True contentment – the kind that satisfies your soul in any situation – can only be found in experiencing God.
That’s why I’m so excited to give away 2 copies of I Want It All on my blog this week. It’s a brand new book written by my dear friend, Gwen Smith. Check out the book trailer and Gwen’s video below then I’ll tell you more:
“I Want It All will ignite a fire in your heart to experience God in such a way that you’ll have more faith, more power, and more impact. More of Jesus. All of Jesus. Everything that God has for you.” ~ Gwen Smith
Instead of pursuing the empty promises of this world, you can have the abundance of what God offers and the rich promises that He established with you in mind. Proof the those blessings are recorded in His Word and made known to us by His Son.
Jesus has already made these gifts available for you. He is the key to accessing it … all of it!
Gwen gives practical help in I Want It All on how to connect your life with the promises of God so you can know the fullness He has called you to.
Enter this week’s drawing by leaving a comment below which answers one of these two questions:
- What makes you feel the most discontent and why?
- If you had a private conversation with Jesus, how would you describe your level of contentment?
