I sure would like to be like Paul who said in Phil 4:11, "I have learned in whatsoever state I am in therewith to be content". Contentment is a good thing I know and also a choice. I thought I had developed that habit. I used to say, whatsoever state (Utah or Arizona) I am in I have learned to be content. I had moved so much and tried hard to adjust my attitude accordingly but I was so glad when we finally bought a home in Arizona and thought we would never move again. Never say never!
Now I want to move back to Manti, Utah. I loved it there! Circumstances are such that the whole family wants to move back. I know that if I stew over wanting it done right now I will just make myself miserable so I will choose to be content right here where I am, until the good Lord sees fit that our home sale. All things are possible with God.
These scriptures just came to mind. James 4:13-15 "Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that."
Well, I could be all wet, but I really believe it is God's will that we move.
