What is God teaching you?


These flowers came from my rose bush out front. Aren't they beautiful?

I heard the question "What is God teaching you?" being asked to someone the other day and it made me stop and think...how would I respond to such a question?

I did some meditating on the subject and right now in my life the Lord is teaching me to be content in everything...content in the car we have, content in not having children at this time, content in all He has given us.

I am so blessed and yet I choose to focus on the things I don't have, that I think I need, instead of focusing on all He has already given me. If I don't find contentment in how my life is now, I will never be content. There will always be something I think I need to make me happy and the cycle will never end.

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Thanks Aunt Phylis... it is amazing to think back to 5th grade and see just how far God has brought me. You played a major roll in my transformation and for that I thank you. Love you and see you soon.
