Once we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life.
~ Harry Hepner ~
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
~ Philippians 4:10-12 ~
Hello everyone, hope all is well. Contentment is a good habit to acquire. To be content while waiting is endurance. It’s even more powerful, to do, by faith.
A season, of anything, can be challenging. Waiting can be brutal. Here’s the beautiful thing, seasons are temporary and waiting builds patience.
That thing, that stuff or that Y is temporary. Until it serves its purpose, it will be around . Keep in mind, it will be different for everyone. Similar, yet different.
Have faith. Be content. Have patience. Have self-discipline. Got fruit? (wink)
The ability to find contentment comes when the focus is on God and the blessings that He provides.
The ability to find contentment comes when we realize it is, what it is. Adapt and adjust by casting your cares, to the Lord, can work wonders.
It’s liberating to free the mind from angst that amounts to nothing. Put “it” at the foot of the cross and be content until we can walk through it. Keep the faith.
We may still fail a test moment; praise God for His mercy and His grace because at the end, of the day, we’re still standing!
Abundant blessings, my friends, as we acquire the habit of contentment, by faith, while waiting for our break through. Praise The Lord!
