1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
hello everyone in bloggerland. i hope everyone has had a wonderful week celebrating Easter, and our Lord Jesus Christ is STILL ALIVE, AMEN!! I was reviewing some previous posts i had made, and i started thinking/writing more on them. One in particular stuck out at me. It was on being contented... some people have it ALL wrong. they are content with the wrong things. it is all about material things, or what all they can get. My Sunday school teacher was teaching yesterday on young couples who try to have everything in the first few years of marriage, that it took their parents 30 years to work for.... This is a very true statement... i know of people right now, that have went in so much debt their first five years of marriage, and now, they are working themselves to death trying to pay for all of that... they are neglecting the Church on Sunday, and not getting to spend time with their family beacuse they have to work to pay bills!!!! THIS IS THEIR CONTENTMENT!!!
EVERYDAY BLESSINGS AND SPECIAL TIMES IN OUR LIVES CAN BRING CONTENT!!
Fun times with my mama!!
my buddy and her mama playing around and acting crazy!! this made my heart smile, because they needed this trip like my mother and I did...
It's times like these, that the Lord sends in our lives.. He sends them always at the right time... Christian fellowship is a great thing... It BRINGS CONTENTMENT..it is great to talk about the blessings of God with other believers, and share your burdens with others... our own abilities do NOT bring true contentment.Trust in the LORD to provide for you, and HE WILL!! OUR attitude toward ''things'' makes a HUGE difference in being contented.. we may be in a bad mood and take it out on other people.... to''some'' people this brings them contentment...but it really does not!!!
In closing, I want to be contented, and right now, i feel really contented.. I am blessed every day, and I thank God for that. I want to have a servant's heart. Do you want a servant's heart??? Be willing to help in any way, and do it for the Lord. this brings TRUE CONTENTMENT!! Keeping our focus on HIm , not material things, brings contentment, ALWAYS!!!
