Are you totally content with your lot?
I'll be the first to admit (with some embarrassment) that there are days when I complain or worry too much about this or that.
My husband is quick to remind me that we have it pretty good.
He reminds me that it's about the JOURNEY, not the DESTINATION! So true...
This is a great book, Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow.
I read this book along with a group of women in a bible study. It was a real eye opener
on understanding what true contentment is, and how your perception of your circumstances,
your roles and your relationships can keep your from possessing a heart of true contentment.
In the book, Linda Dillow, introduces us to a woman named Ella. "Ella worked as a missionary with
the pygmies in Africa for 52 years. She had left her country, her family, and all that was familiar.
Primitive doesn't begin to describe her living conditions in the scorching heat and humiditiy of
the African bush. But Ella found no relief because electricity, air conditioning and
other modern conveniences were only a dream."
Linda Dillow became friends with Ella's daughter who had found an old diary of her mother's.
In the diary she discovered Ella's prescription for contentment.
As you can see I've copied the 'prescription' and put it somewhere that I will see it
daily to remind me that nothing I worry about is in my hands.
Have a great day!
