C is for Contentment
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Hi everyone. Welcome to week three of the ABC’s of contentment. Today’s letter is C for contentment. This is a tough one! I battle this one daily. I especially battled it while I was dealing with my bone infection in 2016. The infection was in my right foot on my big toe. It affected my ability to walk. I couldn’t use my walker for a year and a half. It took two surgeries to remove the bacteria. I had to wait on people and be transferred everywhere. Thankfully, the bone infection is over now and I can get back to using my walker, but I’m still not using my walker as much as I used to. I’m glad people have a heart of compassion toward a person in a wheelchair. However, instead of praying for my physical healing, I’d much rather have people pray for my attitude; that I would be content in every situation, and shine for Jesus. How many times have I caught myself dwelling on the past? The days when my body was faster, etc. However, the Lord calls me not to do that, but instead to be content in every situation. Look at the story of Saul in the New Testament in Acts chapter 9. After he was blinded by the light on the road to Damascus, he became Paul, and was one of the most influential writers in the New Testament. It’s through hardship that real healing begins.
