THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
What are you currently struggling or grappling with in your life?
Maybe the better question is...what are you not struggling with? Sometimes I feel like my whole crazy, small life is a struggle. That is when I quickly have to realize and thank God for all He has blessed me with.
If I am being completely honest, I would say being content is my biggest struggle right now. Some days I wake up and ask God to help me be content during the day. (How silly when I have so much to be thankful for) I struggle with not only in the big things in life but also the little things. I want so bad to think I need new and better things. Big things, like a new house and little things, like new clothes. So much of our lives are spent looking forward to the next thing. When you are in highschool it is graduation, then college, finding "Mr. Right", and eventually marriage. I (maybe you too) seem to never be content right where the Lord has me. We are always looking to the future and what is next.
The Lord is teaching me (thankfully He doesn't give up) to live in the moment, be incredibly thankful for right where I am and to be content.
