Displaced Hope & Enchilada Bake

Psalm 16:11 (erv)

You will teach me the right way to live. Just being with you will bring complete happiness. Being at your right side will make me happy forever.


Recently, I started using a daily journal prompt to spark new ideas and get the creative juices flowing They’re actually prompts that come in a deck of cards, it’s pretty cool. Anyway, recently, one of the prompts read, “If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?”

I started to think about my answer, which is when I realized that it really didn’t matter. We just recently moved to Chicago – we’ve been here a little over 2 months. And don’t get me wrong, it’s great. I love the city, there’s so many cool things to explore and see. I’ve had an entire mindset shift on so many things in the short time that we’ve spent here. But, if I’m truly honest with myself, I’m not any happier here than anywhere else.

When we lived in Ohio, I used to dream about living in Chicago. When we would come to visit, tears would stream down my cheeks the moment we crossed over the tollway to leave. For years, we thought about how we could get here, what steps we could take to make this a reality. It didn’t happen overnight, but years later, now that it finally has, I’m learning that I’ve once again put my “happiness eggs” in the wrong basket.

The world encourages us to set wrong expectations; that location, size and style of our house, our cars, our outfits, our Instagram accounts; that those things will make us happy. But the truth is that organic, lasting, easy happiness comes only from knowing and walking with God.

It’s easy to displace our hope. It happens innocently, without even thinking about it, doesn’t it? Before we know what’s happened, we’re convinced that a special trip or chasing a dream will lead us to that feeling we’ve been craving. This isn’t too far from the devotional a few weeks ago about expectations, it’s just presented in a different way.

David reminds us in the Psalms that Jesus is our only path to true happiness. I love this version because it says, “Just being with you will bring complete happiness.” When’s the last time you reflected on that truth? That you already have everything you need to be completely happy? It takes a constant reminder for me to focus on that truth, and if you’re the same, then consider this that reminder today.


Where are you misplacing your hope for happiness? In your journal, create a list of things that you mistakenly look to for happiness.


Ask God to fill you up completely and fully with Himself today.
