Being Contented

are you in perfect content? are you happy with your life , plain and simple?? sometimes, i think of things to blog about, some of which are about my everyday life. they are the things i do everyday, the things i did over the weekend, or family celebrations, places i traveled to.. ALL these make me content, mainly, because they are the main things i like to do. and i am content doing them. i have found recently, that when doing my devotions, i have journaled my thoughts along with them.. and some of them, i decide to share on here, mainly because they have been such a HUGE blessing to me, that i wish to share with others.. THIS is something i feel the LORD wants me to do, therefore, it makes me VERY CONTENTED.
i am very contented at the moment, sitting here blogging, and eating my livermush/egg sandwich with duke's mayo, and drinking my sundrop...hehe....ahhhh, it's the simple things....:))))

thinking of blessings so far this week that have made me contented are: safe travel to and from, fresh fruit, LORD sending us some much needed rain, my garden growing pretty,wonderful  Sunday services, with a lady saved.. happy patients getting to go home:)), and wonderful Sunday lunch with my whole family ,and a new fella(LOVE YA KEVIN)  ,AND a sweet young soldier (RIDGE) ,gathered round the table, sharing jokes, funny stories..etc..the list could go on and on, but these are just a few of my blessings this week.
God wants us to be happy...  1 Timothy 6:8KJV  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
we choose to be content. it is NOT determined by worldly things. THIS is a BIG one. some people look for worldly pleasures to make them content. examples include: new car, house, NAME-BRAND STUFF, or trying to ''keep up with the jones''... just in competition. ONLY JESUS can satisfy. HE can make you the most happy.
Hebrews 13:5 KJV Let your conversation be without covetousness: and be ye content with such things as ye have; for he hath said,''I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.''

this verse alone is enough.... HE will be there always and will never forsake.My God will always be enough. when others see you in content, they will wonder why you are, and will want it too.i feel that we always need to be contented with what the Lord gives us. it may not be what we want at the time, but it always in HIS time.remember, HE CHOSE to give it to you. this is a BIG one too..:)) a personal relationship with God is true perfect contentment..  Doing the Lord's Will for your life will make you most contented. Living day by day, and trusting Him, THAT'S PERFECT CONTENTMENT. THIS is a true , contented life.
