Shandra Lee. With Heart Wide Open. A Miracle In The Making.

CONTENTMENT:  state of satisfaction; ease of mind. This is where I awoke this morning. Not just an ease of mind but such a DEEP Knowing that all will be well….  That I am dearly loved in the midst of all the messes and goodness and excellence and mediocrity in this Life.

 

“…for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am,  to be content.” Phil.4:11(b) .

CONTENTMENT: mentally or emotionally satisfied with things as they are:  willing to accept circumstances, a proposed course of action.   My inexperience in knowing  what is the best for me in a lot of areas of this Life can create great uncertainty.  The great ease of mind comes when I  give way to the longing for HIS course of action.

“…for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, to be content.” Phil.4:11(b).

This has been a tumultuous year. For my little family and many others that I know and love. There are many things that I would have a redo if I could and many that I have come to dearly love.

“…for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am,  to be content.” Phil.4:11(b).

What I dearly love is the simple life we live. Giving 150% of our hearts where ever God has us planted.

God, Worship, Relationships, Employment, Service.

Laughter, Joy, Peace, Rest and Contentment.

Transparency, Trust, Opening our Hearts, Obedience , Growing, Learning.

“…for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am,  to be content.” Phil.4:11(b).

I am not where I thought I would be. I am not where I was. But I am definitely on my way. The things of 2010 2011 that should be rewound can’t. Acceptance. Live, Learn, EMBRACE 2012. Moving on, forgetting the past, pressing toward the Lovely New Beginnings ahead. Romans 8: 27.

“…for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, to be content.” Phil.4:11(b).

Oh  if I could just explain to you. The Feather comforter, the soft pillow, the sleepy smile with turned up corners, deep in the bed but floating light, as one of the feathers. Peace. For I Know The Plans I have For You. Jeremiah 29:11.  Contentment. In the midst of it all. Contentment. So undeserved. My Blessed Prince of Peace. Refuge.

I dearly love the sound of that. Until next time~ Romans 8:28
