Contentment has been a huge topic for me these weeks. I feel a lesson with that word from the Lord these weeks. I hear him speaking to me through that one word, “contentment”.
It is so easy to not feel content with the road the Lord has set before us. There is so much distractions in the world. So many pretty lights, that the road the Lord has set seems so dull and just too difficult because we are unable to see what is beyond. We tend to not be content with what we are being called to do. We want to tell God what and how we feel our lives should be, yet we say we trust him and his guidance. We miss the lessons he is giving us and the answers to our questions that we have asked him because we are focused on what looks like pretty looking lights of the world.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
When we truly begin to trust in the Lord, we begin to see truth. We begin to see that the pretty looking lights are not what matters because the path the Lord has set has a beauty not easily seen by a blind eye. It has such a beauty that we were too blinded to see before. The pretty little light we were so focused on is temporary but the Lord’s road has an eternal beauty that nothing else can compare.
Be content on the path you have been given, no matter how difficult the road may seem. You may be faced with many hurtles and even rejection on your journey, but find the beauty through it all. Keep moving through it and trust in the Lord.
“Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.”
Has finding contentment through your journey been something you have struggled with as well? Please share below:
