Phillipians 4:11 …….for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. – 21st Century King James Version
It’s Friday and I am thankful to have made it another week!! This has been a very challenging one indeed!! I have been without my car for a week now…HELP ME LORD!!! I have had to rely on others to get me and the girls to work and school and back again. Now you know I am a VERY independent lady and there has been a time in my life when this situation would have me stressed to the max!
However, I can say that I am truly peaceful about the fact that I know that God is in control. Instead of crying and saying WOE IS ME, I said well, ok Lord, I am going to trust You!! I don’t know how I will make it but I will get to work every day and the girls will get to school…and it was so!
It struck me today that I am not all jittery and anxious but actually smiling and waving – the entire week! WOW! This is what it is like to have the peace that passes all understanding cause I am mystified as to how I am actually this calm.
I have friends who are facing critical illnesses and burying loved ones and I have decided that I cannot stress over what I cannot control. I must give it to God who is the only One who can fix it.
In doing that, I was able to take my car back to the person who I bought it from and he agreed to repair it and put the bill on the back side of my payments. FAVOR!! Waiting now for the call that says it is ready. I hope it’s soon! (smile)
Why should we worry then about anything?? God can do anything but fail and my mantra all week has been GOD IS ABLE! God, I trust You, I know You are looking out for me and I know You will not leave me or forsake me!! You know I need to get to work and You will make a way! Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
So right now, I thank Him for His provision, favor and visitation in my life! I truly am content today, knowing He loves me so much that He rode me to work and back through the kindness and love of His people.
In this process of being content, I learned that truly I have to praise Him whether everything is going well or not. It’s not about me anyway but about His excellent greatness despite my circumstances. So, yes, I am contenting. Not just being content, but choosing to stay in that spirit of being content – come what may!!
I hope and pray you have a blessed weekend!
Until Next Time,
Living Victoriously Means I am a Contenting Praiser!
