You content?

Thinking over this last weekend, I really have to sit back and stand in awe of how great my life is and how content I am with it. We really didn’t do anything this weekend out of the ordinary and maybe that’s what makes it so special. I don’t need the “WOW” factor all the time. It’s the simple things…

Like my girl Sophie totally enjoying Chili’s skillet queso with a big ‘ol smile and queso all over her face…or seeing my boy Cephas (kay-fa) sing “Bulls on Parade” loud while we were in Target…or just sitting with Chantel talking. To some of you think…

B-O-R-I-N-G!!!

To you I say poppycock, you hear me? Poppycock I say!

I am at a point of my life in which I am so content with the life God has given me. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not being lazy or stagnant with my life, wife or walk with God, but for where I am at “RIGHT NOW”…there is no place I would rather be.

All to often we get restless about life…

“what’s next?”

“where now?”

“why not me?”

We get so caught up in the future while not enjoying the present. I could totally quote The Lion King here, but I will spare you. Instead I will give you this.

“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him”

– John Piper

Psalm 73:25-26

Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

  1. Simple concept, but if we aren’t careful we can miss out on the things God has for us now…some days I do this better than others…good thoughts Ray.
