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.

    Contentment is something I believe we all strive for over the course of our lives. And if it is God's will that you move, then everything will make it happen. ((HUGS))

    It is really important to live where you are happy. I pray that it works out that you and your whole family can move back there!

    God has His will. He also has His time. And the interim teaches us contentment. Take heart. God will have His will in His time. Love you.

    Listen to the Spirit. If it is the right thing, you will have peace. If not, it will be a stupor of thought.

    Being content is a challenge - but one worth meeting

    Hi Charlene,
    I realize we have to be content with what and where we are. All things are possible with God and when He feels it time for change, it will happen. I have started living and having an attitude of gratitude of what God wants for me and praise His Holy Name for every little thing He does in my life.
    Thank you for your blog. It was awesome.
    God Bless,
