“Making the most of it” – Revisited

   As 2nd Timothy 3:16 says very clearly, Scripture “reproves and trains in righteousness” which implies that the ones who put themselves under it’s authority are going to be wrong and must repent and change because of it.

As I look back at my first post ever published I find that my security in Christ could definitely be called into question. Though I haven’t become perfected in trusting, God’s shown me how to praise Him in the little things as well as outward “big” things.

Besides the lack of care in the title (I misused a period) I would still very much agree with 1st Corinthians 10:31, not that my agreeing changes what’s true, as the Word of God never changes anyways. (Heb 13:8, Psa 119:89)

My inquiry into the state of the heart would now be “can I be content even if I never get that life I want?” Christ calls me to be content in all things (Heb 13:5) and as a good example of this, the Apostle Paul had a less than ideal life (in the worlds eyes) and yet still knew “how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need”.

So in all circumstances, whether I like it or not, Christ gives me the strength and grace for contentedness whether life is as I want it.

So my challenge to myself is to be content in all circumstances, as Christ commanded us to.
