How many of you feel content? Do you feel you have everything you need? Does the end of the money come before the end of the month?
I am guessing most of you would be saying NO!
Behind in car payments. Children sick. Parents in assisted living. Rioting throughout our country. The Pendemic taking many lives.
With all this going on we seem to be trained not to be satisfied.
When is more enough?
Let’s check with Jesus to see what He thinks. In one sentence He said: ” We need to be content.”
I could end this post right here, but I am sure you need some more answers.
We need to concentrate on loving what we have.
God gives us another thought: “We have all that we need.”
Bottom line is: We need to have a gratitude attitude.
I have been watching closely what is going on in the world. A pandemic, rioting, and chaos.
It is very easy to get very discouraged right now. What is going to happen? Will my family be safe? Should I stay hunkered down?
The answer to the last question for me is yes. I have to stay hunkered down. I have several underlying problems and I wouldn’t make it if I got the virus. However, my wife and I go on walks every day. In all problems there is a silver lining. We never had time to walk together before.
As for the rioting, looting, and arson. I am very upset, because the majority of the protesters are good people just wanting to use their free speech rights. However, There are some very serious anarchist, attacking the businesses, the police, and other protesters. That have no thought of mourning the death of anyone. They just want to disrupt. I am told they are paid to come in and cause havic.
We need to be strong and pray for God’s intervention here. He is in charge.
I know, It doesn’t seem right that He is allowing all this to happen. Why would He? It is because He gives man the freedom to choose. We are not robots. We do our own thinking and cause our own actions.
Stay the course, and stay close to God. We will overcome these storms together.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
