LIVING in the MOMENT

183

Letting go of worry and struggles for tomorrow;

Instead choosing to be content and not entrenched in hatred or sorrow.

Valuing this new day that the Lord has made.

Investing in this time by focusing heart and mind

Not on the glittering distractions of this world;

Gazing rather upon heaven through the eyes of God’s Holy Word.

Maintaining and walking in steadfast faith

On the Lord and his wondrously saving grace.

Making this minute, this hour, and this day count;

Enjoying the sweet quiet time which you have found.

Never forgetting to cheerfully share

Treasures and blessings which the Lord has placed in your care.

Hebrews 13:5 (Holy Bible New International Version):

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Although it is no longer Friday, I still wanted to post something in my Friday Verse Journal. I am still working on the idea of being content no matter what my situation may be. This is for me an everyday challenge. Sudden or unexpected obstacles in life really do rattle me. Also when certain challenges in life just seem to take too long to cope with and resolve. It is very easy trust and believe in God through his Son, Jesus when things go well and when things are going well for my friends and loved ones. But when troubles mount and when bad news is revealed then, it is not so easy to just trust him and be content to wait on God’s time to work out all things for the good. However the idea of staying content and being at peace through knowing Jesus is my anchor. If I become too fearful or somehow very upset and my faith is being challenged then I must find my way back to God and keep depending and believing in him.

Philippians 4:11b-13 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):

“For I have learned in every situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low and how to be abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
