Contentment and Balance
Posted on September 20, 2014 by Ann “afriend4ever54” Friend
We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of effort is the same.
~ Carlos Castenada ~
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.
~ Philippians 4:11-13 ~
Hello friends. (smile) It’s been busy at the circus. Ever work so many days straight that you are not sure what day it is? I’ve just been there and done that. I didn’t even get a tee shirt. (smile) My sense of humor is back!
Things in life can get so hectic that all we can do is keep the faith and remember God’s amazing grace will get us through every single time. (smile)
Praise The Lord, I’ve been learning contentment and balance during the things and stuff, and X, Y or Z moments.
It comes down to choices. It is, what it is, until it was. Choosing contentment and balance, to adjust, can make walking through easier.
I believe life is a balancing act everyday. Ah, to find contentment and balance is truly a blessing. Contentment and balance.
Balance time. Balance things and stuff. Balance emotions. Balance ebbs and flows. All lead to contentment and balance, when we stop trying to control everything. We can only control ourself.
Every challenge brings something needed to help us grow. Sometimes, when we lose focus, stuff just keeps on coming. Contentment and balance.
I’m at the circus 5 days a week. Somedays, it’s brutal at the circus. Thank God for His mercy and His grace. Contentment and balance.
There are all kinds of people at the circus. There are many tests at the circus. Contentment and balance.
Spiritual fruit grows at the circus. By the grace of God, my patience has grown. Contentment and balance.
Here is wisdom from above–going around the same mountain or having the same retest gets easier when we choose to adapt instead of react. Contentment and balance. I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. (smile)
Contentment and balance is recognizing there will always be someone saying something about nothing.
Contentment and balance is understanding, at the end, of the day, life goes on regardless. Keep the faith!
Contentment and balance is trusting God, by faith, for the breakthrough.
Contentment and balance is thankfulness until God changes a situation.
Contentment and balance is changing our perspective and perception of things and stuff, even X, Y and Z. Sometimes, we don’t have all the right information.
Blessings, my friends, as we have contentment and balance where we are until God manifest the next step. (smile)
