If reality ceased to be reality, and something else took its place, there would simply be a new reality, just a different reality. So when you wish that reality wasn’t reality, it’s important to know that there will always be a reality. Here and now could soon change to there and then, but if you’re there and then you will be in a new here and now, which will be a new reality. Perhaps a different one from what you had before, and so, preferred to the former, however, soon the new reality becomes the old reality.
My point is this: Do not keep wishing for reality to not be reality. Reality will always be reality and that cannot change.
Instead wish for joy and contentedness amidst the reality that you find yourself in. Pray for satisfaction in Christ. Reality will always be reality, but it doesn’t have to be unsatisfying by nature. God didn’t make us so that we would live like robots day after day. “Christ died for freedom so that we could be free.” He lives so that we can live.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. — Psalm 90:14
