Why do I strive so hard for the easy path?

The one that has been cleared to travel fast.

I don’t recall signing up for all this. Does anyone?

Why do I complain and mumble?

Am I looking too far down the road?

Am I still in beginners’ class, grasping to understand contentment?

Apostle Paul seemingly embraced suffering and stayed faithful to the gospel.

2 Corinthians12:10

For the sake of Christ then, I am content with weakness, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Paul knew he owed everything to God and His call on his life.

Paul lived in the sufficiency of God’s grace.

Why do I act like that sufficiency is not for me?

Philippians 4: 11-13

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be

content. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of

living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.

For I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.

“Choosing contentment choice by choice maybe life’s greatest challenge, but it could also result

in your most important opportunity to impact our watching world.” (Pam Tebow)

“Choosing contentment choice by choice maybe life’s greatest challenge, but it could also result

in your most important opportunity to impact our watching world.”

My circumstance doesn’t need to change as much as my thought process on it does.

I will walk by faith, not by how I feel.

Until next time, Pam

  1. So, so true! Loved this line especially: My circumstance doesn’t need to change as much as my thought process on it does.
