What is Ennui?


 It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui. 

― Helen Keller

What is ennui you may ask?  The dictionary defines ennui as boredom from lack of interest: weariness and dissatisfaction with life that results from a loss of interest or sense of excitement.  Can’t you just picture it?  Satan’s plan frustrated to the max!  The more I come to know the Savior, Jesus Christ and what’s important to Him, the more power I feel I have to combat Satan.  I have also come to know the devil quite a bit more over the last 2 years and that was some difficult knowledge to acquire.  But, you gotta know what you’re up against, right?
