LEARNING TO BE CONTENT for "Sunday Celebration"

 



"I am on to another antique mall in search 
of something I don’t really need.  I can’t 
seem to stop myself.  I must go and search for that one thing that will finally make me happy!"  The truth is that this fever can be caught by any person and if not reeled in – this will never end.

 My husband and I love a day out for lunch and antiquing.  The search can be thrilling
and especially if it is a place you have never been before.  However, when you find 
yourself arriving at the place where you always must be on the go shopping - then,  you know that you are in trouble! 

Contentment is a surrender to a disciplining our flesh.  The Apostle Paul wrote to the believers “Let your conversation be without covetousness: and be content with such things as yet have…..” Hebrew 13:5  This might
be an opportunity to look at what is happening in your life and evaluate.  

"Lord, as we draw close to you, you
show us the areas of our life that need
adjustment and change and we know
you will help us do just that.  Amen."

Amen to your prayer. Yes, I have been learning to be content with such as I have. God has been so kind and generous with us throughout the years, I can never repay Him for all He had done for us. I am thankful for the little things as well as the big things...things like restored health and strength and financial stability in an unstable world, a good roof over our heads...and the love of family and friends. These are the most important things in this life. All the other stuff is just that...stuff. It's nice to have "stuff", but there comes a point when we have to realize that enough is enough and to be thankful and content with that. Even our meager stuff is so much greater than what so many have. Thank you for this lovely post. BTW, I love your foxglove plants. I just got one for my new butterfly garden after seeing how pretty it looks in your garden. My little garden is just getting started and with our sandy soil it is a challenge to keep it watered enough, but it brings some much needed color and beauty to our otherwise drab and sandy yard. It brings me much pleasure to look at it even in its beginning stages. I know how much you must love your garden. It is truly a beautiful place. Thank you for sharing it with us. Have a blessed and wonderful week.
