11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
Being surrounded by the noise of daily life can at times remove the ability to just be content. There are often such pressing needs to have, obtain and move that we can forget about the simple pleasure of being content.
This past weekend I found delight and contentment in being surrounded by precious and rarefied laughter of family visiting for the first time. There was joy in seeing beloved faces lit with pure joy and fellowship, and enjoyed some of the most incredible wings I have ever eaten (thanks Honey!)
Sitting and reflecting upon the weekend I am moved by the words in Philippians 4. There have been days and seemingly at times months of lack, yet by God’s grace there was peace and contentment.
Thank you Lord that I can rejoice no matter what the situation, no matter what comes my way for you truly are worthy of all my praise and the reason for my contentment.
Making His praise glorious!
