Divine Discontent book. Your dissatisfaction with life can be a good thing  .

Let popular author and Bible teacher Michael Youssef introduce you to biblical characters whose lives demonstrate the redemptive power of Divine Discontent. These heroes of Scripture followed their inner restlessness back to God who, in his grace, invites all to enter his rest. Do you have a feeling that you can’t shake–that life could deliver much more than you’re experiencing right now? The lack of peace might keep you up at night, or it could be a steady background hum that is not quieted by bigger accomplishments or more possessions. What you crave goes much deeper.

A Christian perspective on restlessness begins with the banishment of Adam and Eve and traces this concept throughout the scriptures, ultimately concluding that restlessness can lead a person to God and can be ultimately redemptive. ISBN13:9781578565566. Release Date:February 2004.

You drift toward peace and contemplation," he wrote Sheffield, "and I drift toward restlessness and violence. Outside of the neurotic crowd, none of us are digging into or writing about our present life or trying to look into the future. And Danny tells Ethan that he is "better off" than Ethan, a mere clerk. Possibly Steinbeck's discomfort over removing Ricketts's name from the 1951 publication of The Log from the "Sea of Cortez" (published as Sea of Cortez in 1941) found its way into Ethan's guilty treatment of Danny. Instead, we are seeking refuge elsewhere than America or going into the past. I don't know exactly why this is.

Your dissatisfaction with life can be a good thing.Do you have a feeling that you can’t shake–that life could deliver much more than you’re experiencing right now? The lack of peace might keep you up at night, or it could be a steady background hum that is not quieted by bigger accomplishments or more possessions. What you crave goes much deeper. You long for an end to the inner turmoil; you crave freedom from anxiety, guilt, anger, or fear. People have sought the answer in career advancement, recreation, relationships, even religious devotion. But God’s Word demonstrates that dissatisfaction with life is a spiritual problem. It’s an inner thirst that can be quenched only by God. Does contentment have to remain just out of reach, or can we arrive at a place of peace and rest? Let popular author and Bible teacher Michael Youssef introduce you to biblical characters whose lives demonstrate the redemptive power of Divine Discontent. These heroes of Scripture followed their inner restlessness back to God who, in his grace, invites all to enter his rest. Including you.

Great book
Kulalas
This book does a great job explaining why we often feel empty unfulfilled. We were made to have a personal relationship with God and we sometimes try to fill this need through earthly things when we are really longing to feel God. Michael Youssef does a great job of explaining where our citizenship and true home is in heaven.

this is a good book by Michael Youssef, a Pastor from Atlanta, GA. The author addresses why people are constantly searching, not happy , feeling unfulfilled. The root of this discontentment is because of the sin of adam and eve in the garden of eden. Because of this sin, we live in the city of man, The city of man is filled with materialism ,hardships and the worship of false idols with the absence of God. According to the author the key is to draw nearer to God through Jesus Christ, this provides the only true relief from what troubles man in todays city of man. Youssef states in Part 5-The End of Discontentment- that God has framed human history between two gardens, the earthly paradise of the Garden of Eden and the eternal joy of the garden city known as the New Jerusalem or Heaven. In that city we will dwell with Him for eternity and put to an end our restless wandering, our longing for more and our ongoing search for rest and belonging. As the author states on pg. 151 "one of the greatest challenges for Christians today is how to reside in the city of man while dwelling spiritually in the city of God. This book will provide insight into finding peace through God. It is well written and will make you think. I recommend it.
