Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 ~

In Whatsoever State, Be Content

I’m stronger because I had to be, smart because of my mistakes, happier because of the sadness I’ve known, and now wiser because I’ve learned.
~ Unknown Author ~

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) Hope all is well in your world. Praise The Lord, I can say all is well. (wink) I’ve missed writing.

Sometimes, taking a break is needed to gain perspective and pray without ceasing about a situation.

Thank God, the circus shenanigans are no longer the albatross around my neck causing angst. (wink)

This is learning in whatever state to be content. Here’s the catch, it is learned.

To endure less than kind things and/or people can wear anyone down.

I believe in whatsoever state will test and produce more spiritual fruit (love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance) within us, by God, removing anything that keep us stuck.

The strength and ability of perseverance comes from above.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 

It’s knowing God grace is given daily and his faithfulness to never leave us nor forsake us.

To know and apply “for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content” is powerful because I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Hallelujah!

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord. Enjoy your day.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
