Each day is a new day with lots of freshness, hope, and love. I am happy to be awakened in the arms of the Lord, spending time with him and doing all my daily silly household works for Him.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” [Colossians 3:23, 24]
What a glorious reward and how happy I should be to see Christ in everyone and serve them. I am not a perfect woman, I stumble, slip and sometimes even stop running the race to glory. But I choose and desire to follow my Lord because I have the assurance that I have always a place in His heart and He will never leave me nor forsake me.
“I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” [Luke 5:32]
Nothing should steal away our happiness in the Lord.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” [ Romans 8:38,39]
We women are emotional and get distracted easily in thoughts. Our happiness may be affected by our present situations, family life, financial issues, social status and the list will go on. What decides our happiness? What is the desire of our heart?
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “[Mathew 6:21]
So to be unshaken by such circumstances we should seek the word of God as the greatest treasure. It contains the solution to all our problems according to the great wisdom of God and His will. But if we tend to follow the nature of our flesh, be discontent and follow our own way the end will be disastrous.
“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” [Hebrews 13:5]
So let us learn to be content with what we have and trust in the Lord for His guidance. Living in a world of consumerism we sometimes fail to cling on to what it means to be content. In our family life, we decided to remove the small-small weeds in order to grow more in the fellowship with the Lord. We decided to set restrictions in the way we spend money, restricted being lavish, changed our eating habits, determined to be more disciplined and most of all, to be more cautious in the way we conduct ourselves before our kid.
“But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.” [Philippians 3:7,8]
It is difficult for us to change ourselves, to get rid of all the desires of our flesh, to get rid of all the wavering emotions that we have. But if we choose to trust the Lord, He will teach us how to be content with what we have. And all things are possible through Him and only through Him.
“I can do all this through him who gives me strength” [Philippians 4:13]
Finally, my sisters in Christ let us run this race with perseverance and grace.
‘Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’ [ Philippians 3:13,14]
