Ever had those thoughts? We ALL have! BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ENTERTAIN THOSE THOUGHTS. If Satan can get into your mind, he’s going to try to have you all messed up, sad, depressed and frustrated! All for what.. some lie he told you! He doesn’t directly destroy your life.. he takes time and watches you.. and studies you and looks to see what drives you nuts and continually, strategically pushes that button until you feel like a failure. So if you KEEP getting tested in ONE area & keep failing.. you’ve been SET UP.
I love Ecclesiastes 3:8- It says that THERE is a time for EVERYTHING under the sun. So if there’s a TIME for it– your “TIME“– will come and you cannot make that “TIME” come any faster by complaining, murmuring, being mad at God, your mama, daddy, boss or whoever you’re placing the blame on for not having what you think you need.
If you keep staring at reality TV, people’s highlight reel on facebook, gossip bogs and magazines– what else are you going to think about? You’ll compare your life to their life–wishing and hoping you had what they had but you DON’T see their daily struggles and what they go through, YES, they have issues too, they just aren’t sharing them with YOU. So instead of pumping your brain with garbage– pump it with three of my favorite contentment scriptures:
To worry means we do not trust God. The key to overcoming our discontentment and lack of faith is to find out who God really is and how He has been faithful to supply the needs of US in the past. When you begin.. to STUDY this, it will grow your confidence and trust for the future.
