Contentment - February 24, 2014

Psalm 131(GOD’S WORD Translation)
1O Lord, my heart is not conceited.
My eyes do not look down on others.

I am not involved in things too big or too difficult for me.

2Instead, I have kept my soul calm and quiet.
My soul is content as a weaned child is content in its mother’s arms.

3Israel, put your hope in the Lord now and forever.

How would you like to wake up and not have to stress about what you had to do for the day? How would you like to do it before your in a retirement home? Lord knows that we would all live longer and healthier if we had a childlike, simple faith, leaving everything up to God. There is much to be said about having the simple life; just take each day and living it to the full, content with what you have been given. Living that way takes total trust in God, and placing all of your hopes on what Jesus Christ has done.

Are you ready to live that way? Give it all to Him and you can start today!
