Contentment.

Sometimes in life it's so difficult to be content. I know it is for me. It seems like I'm always looking forward to the next big thing in life. In junior high, it was high school; now for me, it's college. Soon it'll be marriage, then kids, then grandkids...and so on.

But what am I doing today to change the world and enjoy the moments that I am given? I can daydream all I want about my future and what I'm going to do when I get older for God, but what I often don't realize is that I can do something in the here in now for God--stay open to Him and be a vessel that He works through.

When we as God's children are open to what He wants to do in our lives, even if we don't know what that is--God can use us beyond anything we could ask or imagine. And it may seem a little backwards to have the mentality that God can work in us even when we don't even know what He is working through--but that's just the way that God works sometimes. His ways are better than our ways, and in the end, they are the best.


So...may I be content in my everyday life and in my everyday walk with God--not forgetting about my future, but living in the moment. May I open up myself--heart, soul, mind, and body--to be used by God. For even if I feel I am nothing, God can always use nothing to do something great for His kingdom.
