Contentment Leads To Happiness
How many times have you sat around looking at your surroundings annoyed, feeling you’re not where you should be, and wishing you would get to the finish line already? Rather you feel like you need more physically, mentally, or spiritually I can assure you we’ve all been there before! In fact, this won’t be the last time you feel this way, because we will always want more. That’s just human nature! I always have the tendency to be extra so my goals are of course extra too! The bigger the goals and the bigger the drive the more the enemy wants to come and knock you down. He wants you to feel worn down, stressed out, and incomplete cause your goals haven’t manifested yet, BUT you don’t have to accept that! You CAN get your peace back! You CAN be content in now! You CAN be confident that you will get through the season you are in!
Take your eyes off your struggles, off the busy schedule, and remind yourself that God has it! Everything will come to pass in due timing and if everything is in God’s hands there’s no need to worry.
“Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.”
- Psalms 37:4-5
Delight yourself in the Lord means to take pleasure in Him. He handed you the season you’re in so take pleasure in it! You’re only lonely because you’re not taking pleasure in being alone. You’re only feeling inadequate because you’re not taking pleasure in who God has really called you to be. You’re only tired cause you’re not taking pleasure in the work that God has given you. You’re only disappointed because you’re not taking pleasure in where God has you right now! Take pleasure in your season! Be content, so that you can be happy!
Remind yourself that today you are exactly where you need to be! Learn to be content so you can be present in the now. It’s not about the future, it’s about now! This season! Continue the work with gratitude and watch the shift happen!
