Contentment While Waiting

Posted on January 2, 2015 by Ann V. Friend

Once we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life.
~ Harry Hepner ~

But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. ~ Philippians 4:10-12 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Contentment is a good habit to acquire. To be content while waiting is endurance. It’s even more powerful, to do, by faith.

A season, of anything, can be challenging. Waiting can be brutal. Here’s the beauty, seasons are temporary and waiting builds patience.

That thing, that stuff or that Y is temporary. Until it serves its purpose, it will be around . Keep in mind, it will be different for everyone. Similar, yet different.

Get faith. Get content. Get patience. Get self-discipline. Got fruit? (wink)

Being able to find contentment comes when we focus on God and the blessings that He provides.

Being able to find contentment comes when we realize it is, what it is. Adapt and adjust and hash tag careless can work wonders. (grin)

It’s liberating to free the mind from angst that amounts to nothing. Put “it” at the foot of the cross and be content until we walk through it. Keep the faith.

We may still fail a test moment at the circus; regardless, praise God for His mercy and His grace because at the end of the day, we’re still standing!

Abundant blessings, my friends, as we acquire the habit of contentment, by faith, while waiting for our break through. Praise The Lord!

Your thoughts or comments are always welcome. (smile)
