Refresh, Renew & Refuel: CONTENT

 

CONTENT    She lived ninety-two years, most of those years raising three children and loving one man, my grandpa. As I remember her today, the word that describes her was content. She didn’t complain, wonder, or waver–she was simply content. Such contentment is remarkable, definitely a ‘rare jewel’. In fact, the Apostle Paul in Philippians 4 tells us that there is a “secret” to contentment. The secret is ” I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Yes, contentment comes with living out of a real, vital, personal relationship with Jesus.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Our commitment to put God first in our time, talents and treasures; and to live through Him gives strength and power to be content. “To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less. That’s what I’m working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me.” Col 1:29 As we approach this wonderful holiday season, pray that you will have a heart of contentment. Apostle Paul in the strangest place, prison,was content for eternity. Whether he had plenty or little, Paul could be content with what he had, because of his real, vital, personal union with Jesus. When we have Jesus. We have enough. He is all that we need this Christmas season.
