What are your priorities?
How is your life worthy?
What is your w h y in life?
Are you content?
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. |Philippians 4:11-13|
The title I decided to display was to “preserve” your identity in Christ, continually. Knowing daily with Christ your priorities are focused on God’s love and will for you. Your life is worthy in God’s eyes because He formed you. Your why in life is to learn to be content and not be weary on comparison. Learning to be humble everyday by the continuous blessings and teachable moments God gives you.
Today, I must admit, was definitely a light bulb moment of learning to preserve the existence of trusting in God’s timing (always!), His will and how His needs are above yours and you need to trust it fully and to not water down God’s expectations for you.
Let me rewind a little bit and give you an explanation and a slight detail on my light bulb moment: Today’s date is very important to my husband WHY? you ask… well, many moons ago he was in a severe accident and almost lost his life on this day. God made the miraculous decision for Cory to not be in His heavenly arms, but to still be on this earth with his loved ones and to learn about a new transition of not only how he interacts, but the changes and new dynamic he will continually learn to do, even to this day.
I am expecting blessing #2 any time now and my heart was so FULL with prayer and thoughts of “this would be such a breathtaking testimony of God giving Cory life again and many moons later on the same day, God gave Cory not only life, but another child. Making today not a burden, but a lesson and a blessing of how far he has come.”
My mind was spinning and praying endlessly on “hoping” the baby comes, “hoping” everything worked out, but my heart was shattered due to expecting too much of “I believe this would be a great testimony!”
As we came home I had to literally clear my head, complete today’s devotion with my husband, and sit back to understand how I should be content in everything, every choice God decides for me.
Therefore, tomorrow unfolds to a new day! I am truly grateful the baby is healthy and know God’s timing for this child will be perfect and they have their own testimony to share to others.
