I’m at a place in my life where I feel fully content. I remember years ago, my friend asked me, “Have you ever seen a truly content person?” I couldn’t answer. We look around, we see happily married couples, we see families that function well, but does that make them fully content, or just living in their every day worlds? Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute?
I’ll be the first to admit, I always have days like that. But today, yesterday, and hopefully tomorrow, I feel fully content. I am a grown up. I’ve insisted on myself in so many ways over the past four/five years that I’d be crazy not to feel contentment. And while I feel completely ready to share my heart, I also revel in this gift God’s given me, MY LIFE! I am amidst the happiest I’ve ever been, EVER! I want to boast about my strength, my contentment, my LIFE, BUT:
THIS IS WHAT THE LORD SAYS:
“THE WISE MUST NOT BRAG ABOUT THEIR WISDOM.
THE STRONG MUST NOT BRAG ABOUT THEIR STRENGTH.
THE RICH MUST NOT BRAG ABOUT THEIR MONEY.”BUT IF PEOPLE WANT TO BRAG, LET THEM BRAG THAT THEY UNDERSTAND AND KNOW ME. LET THEM BRAG THAT I AM THE LORD, AND THAT I AM KIND AND FAIR, AND THAT I DO THINGS THAT ARE RIGHT ON EARTH. THIS KIND OF BRAGGING PLEASES ME,” SAYS THE LORD.
God knows ME! God knows my thoughts! God knows my heart! He knows my desires. He knows my weaknesses. He knows my love. I know, He’s my Lord. He’s kind and fair. He does what’s right; He does what’s right for me.
I’ve been spending a lot of time reading through my old journals. Some of them freak me out as I see His hand, His guidance that has brought me to today. Others make me smile as I see how fair and right He’s made my life. So tonight, I boast. I BOAST IT OUT LOUD, BABY… because He is my LORD and I FULLY understand Him, I FULLY know Him and His beautiful LOVE for me!
