“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
The apostle Paul said that he had learned to be content. It seems to me that so many of us (me included) have yet to learn this lesson. Every fiber of our culture says that we need more, more, more…but I am just not so sure.
Sometimes, God orchestrates circumstances that shake us out of our everyday existence. That is what we have been living in for the past few months. When Robert lost his job, I suddenly had to wake up! I realize that I have been extremely spoiled. Surely, I still am in so many ways.
Yet, clearly things don’t make us happy. Life is much more than the sum of our possessions. Though the loss of a job has been a major motivator to change the way that we live, we’ve seen that there is a tremendous amount of common sense to living without succumbing to our every whim.
Filling our homes shouldn’t really have anything to do with our wallets. Satisfaction runs much deeper than that. Join me as I continue to learn the art of contentment. I hope you enjoy this journey as I share my faith, family, and finances with you!
