“Do not be afraid or terrified…for the Lord your God goes before with you, he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
Well technically we’re never alone but sometimes you want an earthly companion; your other half. It’s easy to look online or on our phones and see other people paired off and appearing happy. We can get so caught up in their fairy tale that we forget our lives are pretty awesome too.
“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 everything through him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4: 11-13)
That’s something I can latch onto and really try. These days I’m trying to say what I’m thankful for every day and whenever I get done reciting the list, I see how numerous my blessings are and how few my problems are. This whole contentment thing is a daily thing as is the Christian walk in general.
“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” (Luke 9:23)
But be encouraged because the Word says,
“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12)
