Finding Contentment in God's Love

As my coffee is heating in the microwave, I stand at the kitchen sink and cut open an avocado for breakfast. I love standing here. The sky is just beginning to lighten behind the Peacock Mountains and I can see off in the distance the headlights of semis and a few cars dropping into our bowl shaped valley as they head west on Interstate 40. It’s still a little too cold to sit out front on my deck chair and watch as the mountain across the way lights up from the top down as the sun rises behind the house. Wherever I look I can enjoy the views from my high desert home.

The more I spend my time focused on the beauty of God and His love, the less the cares of this world matter to me.

Despite reading Psalm 23 this morning, my examples helped him to see how it looked in real life. Seeing how it looked in real life was inspiring to him and hopefully helped him to see examples that he was blessed with.

Embracing God’s Love: A Call to Contentment

You are blessed. God loves you and wants to be in relationship with you. I want you to first know His love then I want you to feel the contentment that Paul describes. When God doesn’t provide what we think we need, we have a tendency to lose that contentment.
