the invitation of unease

i was reviewing some of my notes from the handful of interviews i’m conducting in connection with writing a book on hope. and i was struck by the profundity of this amazing bit from my friend sam saavedra:

I have a lot of peers who get dissatisfied and equate that with “something’s wrong with me or others” — blaming. But there’s an invitation in this sense of unease. An invitation in that feeling itself, that God is holding something out and waiting for you to step into something new. I’ve always seen my dissatisfaction as a welcoming thing. “There’s something more for you” is great for providing hope!


got some dissatisfaction on this august monday? good. frame it as an invitation: there’s something more for you!
