It’s Monday morning. Typically, like so many of us, I feel/think/say, “UGH! It’s MONDAY!” But, not today. We are going through the book of Philippians right now at church, so we are also reading/studying that text for our morning family time. Today we read:
I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me. Phil 4:11-13
So yeah, it’s Monday. Let the craziness of the weekdays of a busy family commence. But, it’s a Monday where I have a job and Kevin has a “job”/ministry position. We’re not knocking the doors down of any new tax brackets, but the Lord is providing for us. And I am thankful. We can actually have and stick to a budget because there’s income coming in… ahhhhh. Thankful.
We have had a little, and now we have a lot (by the world’s standards). And I am content. Content in my Jesus who is enough whether in abundance or in need.
PS – Of course, I still had my coffee… don’t play!! 🙂
