SATISFACTION with what we have: Ever wonder why a certain friend, or co-worker… seems to have it all together? Well adjusted….yet struggling financially; …not fashionable – yet neat and clean; family education is clearly important…but he struggles to send them to the best schools.
He’s recognized as an un-official leader, yet receives no reward, or recognition. Yet..in spite of the difficulties…he is clearly happy and well adjusted; accepted by all of his peers and co-workers, and his family life is safe and stable. You wonder why?
How can this guy be so happy…yet seemingly…going nowhere fast?
“Look for the happy signs” …. Accepting – yet giving; patient – yet competitive; charitable – yet shrewd; hardworking – yet relaxed. …Committed to God – yet worships in private.
We are guided by… Psalms 55:22 – Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
