I admit this is an area where I sometimes struggle. I don't know why. When I stop and really think about it I have a great life. I have a husband that adores me and I adore him, my dream of becoming a mama came true. I am able to stay home and care for my family. I have a home, plenty of food, really anything I need.
It is hard living a world of more, more, more. You see the "Jones Family" with their huge house, brand new cars, taking wonderful vacations and then discontentment seeps in. It creep in last week and I really dislike it when that happens.
Luckily when I have this feeling it doesn't last long. Chuck and I talked about it this weekend and that really helped.
This is the verse that I have been thinking about:
Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. ~Philippians 4:11
I also read:
A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit. ~Proverbs 15:13
So as a new week begins that is how a plan to begin, with a happy heart!
