A Little Encouragement for Your Tuesday...

Contentment is a yielding to our Great Almighty, Holy King.
"God is the blessed controller of all things, the king over all kings and the master of all masters."
1 Timothy 6:15

He is the blessed controller of our circumstances, gifts, abilities, possessions, roles, and relationships.

We acknowledge His sovereign control by trusting Him for everything: what we don't understand, what we can't see, and what doesn't make sense to us.
When God becomes our total trust, we humbly accept our portion and our cup {Psalm 16:5}.

 We accept what He has allowed in our past.
We accept what He has allowed today.
And we give all of our tomorrows to Him.

 A humility grows within us that He is the loving controller of all life.

 When we have given all of our questions to God, when we're not grumbling about the past or anxious about the future, when our tomorrows are in His keeping, we are free to wake up every morning and say, "God, You've given me today as a gift. Show me how to glorify You in it."
Excerpt from the book:  Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow. 

 Hope your day is filled with JOY!

Beautiful thoughts you've shared here today Julia! We are all in need of encouragement and timely reminders in this ever changing world that God does not change, His Word is truth and his love for us is from everlasting to everlasting. I love the pictures you chose to accompany too - it's always so sweet for this 'townie' to get a glimpse of the country life. I am watching each day as the corn in the field across from our home reaches skyward and asking God to keep my heart content with that for now.
