Reference: 1 Timothy 6:6 NIV

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

My Thoughts: 

I have this mantra from college: “Never Satisfied”.  I took it to mean always better/progress/improvement, but I’ve  been using it to beat myself up about what I haven’t accomplished. It’s gotten so bad that my heart starts to physically ache when I envisioned where I feel I “should be” or thinking about dying without fulfilling my full purpose. It’s a lack of trust in God,  a smack in the face  at what He said to me. God, forgive me for trying to do your job, obstructing Your plan and wasting the precious time you’ve given me on things I can’t control.
