"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can everything through him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:12-13
Oh I so want to answer this question with a big resounding "YES"!!!!!! But the truth is, I'm not content. Well, I kind of am, at least I think I am, but.....
I am not satisfied with life.
I get anxious.
I try to fix things...and people.
I try to fix myself.
I want new clothes.
I wish I had thicker hair.
I wish I had a thinner waistline.
I wish I had more closet space.
I could go on and on. It is really so selfish. And I say it and mean it, "Lord I am sorry. Please forgive me!" I am blessed beyond measure. I have the Lord in my life. What else could I possibly want????
From one of my favorite books, His Princess, Love Letters From Your King,
given peace when you let Me into your life. It IS possible, My princess, to
enjoy your life with a peaceful mind and a contented heart. You have so much to
look forward to when you're settled in your heavenly home with Me. But for now
remember that nothing you buy or collect will calm your spieit or
soothe your soul like I can. You came into this world with nothing, and that is
how you will leave it. Let Me do more
than give you the good gifts this life
has to offer. I will give you a place of peace, decorated with delight and
filled with memories that will be more cherished than anything this world has to
offer. So let Me be your treasure, and I will give you a rich life that will
beautiful than anything money can buy.
Your King and your
ContentmentOk, I'm content:)Have a blessed day,Melissa
