It appears that there are so many things the Lord seems to be working on in my heart these days! But it is a very good thing! One night at church as I was waiting for worship to start, I happened to hear a couple of people talking and all of a sudden I could feel discontent creeping into my heart! How quickly I can allow discontent to come when I start looking around and comparing myself to others! The Lord used this time to show me how easy it is for discontentment to take root! The CD Peace All Over Me by Serene Allison and Pearl Barnett has a song with a chorus on it that I particularly like. It does my heart good to sing these words ~ they are such lovely words of encouragement:
“My heart is full, my heart is full,
Why would I want for more
When my cup overflows?
My heart is full, my heart is full,
This much I know.”
Oh, I have so many lessons to learn with the Lord! I guess my schooling continues on!! In a world filled with distractions, it’s a growing process of learning to keep my eyes on Jesus!
Today I am finding a sense of contentment in the blessing of being able to pick a bouquet of flowers from my own yard! Such simple joy it brings! ♥
Of course, my real contentment needs to be in the Lord Himself ~ even if I have no flowers to pick! My heart is full because of Him!
Is your heart full?
May your heart be filled with peace and contentment as you reflect on the Lord and His many blessings! ♥
