While contentment may not just magically appear, one day we may all of the sudden realize that we too have learned contentment through our experience of walking with God. I’m guessing it won’t be in spite of our circumstances, but because of them. #TrustGod #SeekGod
Paul’s contentment is rooted in his dependence on Jesus. When he is weak, then he is strong. It is God’s grace that is sufficient, not Paul's abilities—or ours. #TrustGod
Sometimes we can focus solely on praising God's character and works, but sometimes our hearts are broken and we are confronted with the brokenness of the world. In these places, maybe we can blend our praise and prayer. We can choose to seek and to trust God in spite of our circumstances, letting our praise lead us to prayer for His kingdom to come. #TrustGod #Prayer
I’d finally been honest and stopped trying to put a brave face on it. My words weren’t pretty and I wasn’t gracious, but God had gifted me with understanding and compassion. In my mourning, He provided comfort.
