Contentment. It is a word so foreign in our culture that we don’t really understand what it looks like in our life. Is there ever really any contentment?
I could say I am content right now:
- New and growing relationship with an amazing Man of God
- Family is healthy and happy.
- Understanding my relationship with Christ with new meaning
- SWITCH is taking a turn into a new season (depth in student and leader relationships)
…and yet, it would be easy to be discontent with how content I am. I’ll often ask myself, feeling a bit guilty: Is it right to be this happy? Isn’t there something I need to be agonizing over? Seeking God about? Worrying about?
A wise woman once told me to look at the scriptures: Psalms is full of agonizing, questions, doubts, frustrations… it is also full of praise, worship, thanksgiving (those times when everything was going great in King David’s life)
So I’m reminded today, to be content in my contentment. To praise. Worship. Give thanks.
What about you?
