Good morning, ladies! The house is quiet, and the day has just dawned. This feels so good, doesn’t it? At the same time, I’m looking forward to hearing tiny voices through my bedroom door shortly. There is nothing better than being a wife and mama!
When I woke up this morning, I felt a wave of contentment wash over me. The Scripture verse which mentions that “joy comes in the morning” really is true. Today is a new day, filled with possibilities to serve both God and others well.
O Lord , You are my God. I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, For You have done wonderful things; Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
But will I choose to remain content as the day continues on? Only time will tell. I must admit that sometimes my flesh gets the best of me, and I simply do not remain content.
This is no way to be! After all, the Lord has been so good to us. I need to count my blessings instead of grumbling and complaining.
We can choose to find contentment right where we are today. At lot of times this involves setting down our phones and opening up our Bible. Such encouragement can be found there.
Something what brings me contentment is knowing that God can use me for His purposes right where I am. I don’t need any special skills to be used by Him. And neither do you.
I am determined to find contentment this month in all of the little things I do each day. Whether writing a grocery list, mending an outfit, reading to my children, planting seeds, whatever it may be.
Would you join me? If we need a little reminder, we can jot down our blessings in a notebook, like this one that I put together for you guys. I’m quite sure they will add up over time!
Next week I plan to host a fun giveaway here. Also, I’m currently running a 15% off sale in my Joyfully Made Etsy Shop if anyone is interested.
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
