I am Content……….
There were quite a few moments in my life where I sat down with self, reflected and mourned over what was and what is.
I thought of the things I should of, could have and would have done to prevent myself from going down certain avenues in my life
But godliness with contentment is great gain for with contentment comes peace and with peace comes surety.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain that we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be content– 1Timothy 6:6-7
I wouldn’t say that I’m independent but simply self reliant. I’ve learned to motivate my own smiles and rely on my own thought
I’ve maintained thoughts of greatness in the midst of dilemmas that could have crumbled my dreams and crippled my thinking.
I seen people Ive helped and mentored get ahead while my setbacks kept me chained until Jesus spoke to me saying…..
Let not your heart envy sinners: but be you in the fear of Yahweh all the day long. For surely there is an end; and your expectation shall not be cut off. – Proverbs 23:17-18
Now I’ve found a place of confidence and serenity within myself as I privately commune with God and rest in his assurance his perfect will.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am in to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:11-13
I am learning to trust God based on who he is, it is not my place to understand the will of God but it is my purpose to trust and obey him in whatever state I am in.
It takes maturity to accept the will of God, in the end thy kingdom come and thy will, will be done and his will is perfect fit for our lives
Let your conduct be without covetousness; and be content with what you have for He has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you. – Hebrews 13:5
