"lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones. and i will try to fix you. " .... -Coldplay

"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more grey" 
This was a quote from the movie Shawshank Redemption and I thank my friend, Princess for sharing it to me this morning. 

Have you ever come to a point in your life when you just asked yourself "Is this all there is?" "Isn't there more to life than this?" It's funny how we are in constant search for whatever we are searching yet not really knowing why we searched for it to begin with. 
I have been out of town to 7 different places in less than 5 months and my heart still yearns for more. Contentment. Often very hard to acquire, yet all too easy to falter at. I just came back from a trip to a very busy city and all i could think of was where to go next, what to do next, what to feel next, like life is never enough, love is never enough, joy is never enough.
I woke up after a day in that buzzing city and it was amidst the skyscrapers that i realized how wrong i have been. 
A hawk greeted me and all i could say was 'are u an eagle?' .... you always want what isn't there... but that day i realized that contentment is hapiness... coz sometimes, a hawk is a hawk... no matter how many times u wish it was an eagle... :)

Whatever it is that we are longing for, searching for, yearning for, let's pause, process and remind ourselves this: GOD is enough. In fact, He's MORE than enough. We do not deserve His grace but He gave it to us freely and without hesitation.
