I’m Happy for You–Well Maybe

41bF+bdNj9L._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_We live in a world where we are striving to get the most Facebook likes on a picture, well “reactions” I suppose now. We want every friend or even acquaintance to click the heart on our Instagram post. We want followers to retweet and quote our tweets on Twitter. Sadly, we live in a constantly comparing atmosphere–never satisfied with who we are and what we have.

Kay Wills Wyma takes on the subject of contentment in her book, I’m Happy for You (Sort Of… Not Really). She uses humor along with personal stories to remind us that we can be content in a world that is constantly comparing us to others, even when we do the comparing ourselves!

She points out that “…the longing to know we belong compels us to race after anything that offers to secure our feelings of importance and worth.” How sad, but how true. We as individuals want to belong, we have that desire to fit in. We as believers, however, are not created to “fit in”-we are to be different. We are to be a shining light in a world that is very dim.

Thought-provoking read! Pick up a copy.

Blogging for Books provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
