My post from yesterday as gotten a lot of hits. It's called Let's Think about Bread. I thought it was a good post. It had a great message. It probably took about 20 minutes to write. I check it out today and I realize that I posted a picture of bread. That's it. No words whatsoever. I have no idea where the words are, but it is quite funny this post gets so much attention. I wonder what people think -- do they think I'm really deep because it's a just a picture? Do they think I was tyring to be funny? I don't know. I wasn't. Just common human error.
I'm back to where I've been with a problem so many times in the past. I am not happy to be back. I am not living out that contentment we are all called to have at all times. I can't fix the situation. All I can do is wait and trust God and believe expectantly for His solution.
Why am I not content in this?
I know He'll come through somehow.
I know this will not even be remembered in a year's time, maybe even in six months.
I know that it's temporary.
But I don't like it.
I guess sometimes it gets down to that -- we just don't like a situation and if we could we'd change it.
But there are days God backs us into a little box for a time-out of sorts because we needed one.
I'm working on my project. Last week God gave me a great 49th birthday. My husband recently got a new job that starts in August. My child I've been so concerned about has been making some great choices. We had a great weekend.
Why do we insist on continuing in discontent when there are so many blessings surrounding us?
Go back up six lines -- because we don't like it. I don't like it.
In August we will have lived here for two years. I love it here. Several months prior to us moving the complaints about the move starting coming out of my youngest child. Over and over and over and over. And even after we moved the complaints continued.
But now, she loves it here. But for several months it was miserable (at least for me) dealing with her complaints.
Uh-oh....is it miserable for God to deal with ours?
I don't know. I sure hope not. I don't want to give God misery.
So, let's get some healthy scripture here to help this discontent.
"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is attractive, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things." Philippians 4:8
