Celebrate Faith and Contentment


In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.
~ Albert Einstein ~

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. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
~ Philippians 4:11-13 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

This week, Join me to celebrate faith and contentment. It’s a beautiful thing to have faith and contentment in whatever season we’re walking or crawling through.

Remember, I love crawling through because it gives me rest in between challenges or Y moments. (wink) Praise The Lord.

Faith and contentment exemplify I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

The power of knowing I can walk or crawl through _________________ (fill in the blank) is liberating to being f r e e because we know who we are in Christ.

There are times, extra grace is needed, to maintain faith and a state of contentment, especially when waiting or stuck in a challenging environment or situation. Keep the faith, it’s temporary.

There are times, it’s painful, when faith is tested to maintain contentment, pause to breathe calmly and remember God’s faithfulness. Keep the faith, it passes. Praise The Lord.

Faith and contentment builds inner strength to show Jesus to a hurting world.

Abundant blessings, my friends, with faith and contentment to enjoy today.

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

One of my biggest personal goals is to remain content and be grateful for what I have. I manage to do so most of the time, but some people make it harder – always complaining and pessimistic. I know they aren’t good for me, but cutting loose is hard. Wishing you a lovely weekend!
