Day 92-Allison Park, Pennsylvania: Being Content
When the sun is shining upon our face from Heaven, do we really see and feel it? When the water is blue as the sky, do we appreciate how blessed we are to be in a beautiful place that some people will never experience? It is easy to get blown away by the everyday life that we have. What really sidetracks us from the joys of this world? Are we the ones holding us back or we putting our faith and someone else banking on them to pull us out of a rut?
The real love of this world comes from God and he always provides all that we need in terms of food, water, shelter, and clothing. However, until we wake up and pay attention to the signs from God, we will miss these precious moments with our Father. That is why taking the time for ourselves is equally as important as providing for our families and friends. We have to find our own level of peace in this world first, and then distribute our gifts accordingly. It can be very difficult to be truly content, but when you have it you are in the presence of God in the most intimate way possible.
The message from Philippians 4 says it in the clearest manner, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Through God we have EVERYTHING we will ever need in every situation. There are no barriers to the love and gifts that are in store for us from God. All we have to do is accept Him into our hearts and He will do the rest for us. We have pain and worry. God has the answers to prayers and enough love to heal the world over and over again.
