This is an Oil Painting that I did of The Good Shepherd
Philippians: Chapter 4 verse 11
I am not saying this because I am in need,
for I have learned to be content
whatever the circumstances.
Today is the start of a new month, let us endeavor to be content if we can this month in what ever circumstances we find ourselves. Let us rest in the knowledge and love of Jesus that He is with us everyday, comforting and guiding us by His Holy Spirit.
Taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
The above Bible quote was spoken by St.Paul, so it would be good if we can follow his example and be content just where we are. I know that we all have problems and hope for better things to come sometimes. However that may take a while for our circumstances to change. But while we are waiting for things to change in our lives it is a good idea to appreciate the things we have.
We can appreciate having a roof over our heads, food, shelter, water, especially if we are blessed with a family, let us be content with having them in our lives.
Another thing that helps us to be content is if we have a Pet animal, we can be content that we are giving our Pet a good home, that can be a real blessing to our-self and of course to our beloved Pet.
When we can be content it is surprising what The Lord Jesus can do to encourage us with even more blessings that we ask for.
What about any talents that we have been given, are we using them to please God Our Father in Heaven? Even in our everyday work we can be content in doing it to the best of our ability – then we will be content at the end of the day that we have done our best in what ever circumstance we have found our-self.
This is one of my better photo’s – hope you like it.
May God – Jesus – and The Holy Spirit help you to be Content today.
