Honest moment here folks….
I am really having a hard struggle with contentment right now :/
Then I struggle with guilt on top of that for not being content…
It is a vicious, vicious circle that keeps us
occupied from true joy in the Lord!
I often find my mind wandering to what it would
be like to live somewhere else,
live where I used to live, have a new career,
be healthy, have different circumstances
what if i would have traveled a different road?
Social media gives us the impression that everybody
else has it figured out, that every other women is
the perfect mom, wife, career women, homemaker,
So what do we do?
We can first stop and look at our heart. Why am I so discontent?
Am I focusing inward or am I focusing on God?
Am I focusing on things I don’t have or am I focusing on
the many blessings and circumstances the Lord has given me?
I can answer for myself, I am not focusing on God when I do this,
I am not focusing on my blessings.
Instead of waking up and the first thing I think of is,
“Great, another morning in severe pain from this stupid
disease!” I could start to think of my beautiful boys and
how I am still able to walk and the Lord has chosen to
allow me to take in breath once again this morning!
