To Be or Not To Be…CONTENT

To Be or Not to Be…CONTENT

💥“Not that I speak from [any personal] need, for I have learned to be content [and self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or uneasy] regardless of my circumstances.”

Philippians 4:11 AMP💥

You ever been through something…a transition of life, a major situation, or simply just had a cluster of thoughts rummaging through your mind all at once⁉️ Yeahhhhh…I know you have‼️ Who hasn’t😩🤷🏾‍♀️ But how did you feel while going through and dealing with these situations, circumstances and shifts/transitions⁉️ If you’re anything like me, you despised it with a passion‼️ I mean who likes change⁉️ Who likes to be inconvenienced⁉️ NOBODYYYYY‼️

You see, when it comes to God He’s not at all concerned about how you feel and what you think‼️🤷🏾‍♀️ Whether you’re uncomfortable or feeling uneasy, God’s gonna shape and purge everything not like HIM, up out of YOU‼️ The minute you begin to seek God fully for the full sanctification of YOU, your HEART, your SPIRIT and your SOUL…TRUST ME when I tell you He’s going to PURGE YOU and there’s not going to be any form of COMFORT coming out of that‼️ 😂🤷🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

Every time I cried out to God for Him to purge me and get me back in right standing with HIM, it took everything in me not to scream and tell Him to STOP‼️ But what kind of God would He be if He left us how He found us⁉️ What kind of people are we that’s okay with being off track with God⁉️

Have we become so desensitized to our mess that we refuse to change or even so that we don’t realize the NEED for us to change⁉️

CONTENTMENT: Peaceful Happiness; Satisfaction; STILL (BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD…Psalm46:10)

Paul speaks of being content regardless of what’s thrown our way‼️ Contentment in this case exemplifies being pleased and satisfied with God NO MATTER WHAT‼️ Granted I know there has been tons of times I have quit and other times when I so desperately wanted to quit and throw in the towel because the going got tough…TOUGHHHHHHHH‼️

At every turn we have to make a conscious decision on whether we’re going to have a sense of PEACE and JOY no matter what‼️

Are you gonna be okay living for God even if the things you so passionately desires never comes to full MANIFESTATION⁉️ Are you gonna be CONTENT in GOD when the money runs dry and you have no idea how the next month’s bills are gonna get paid⁉️ Are you gonna be CONTENT in GOD when you’re barren and been wanting to have a family of your own for so long⁉️ No matter what’s thrown your way ARE YOU GONNA REMAIN CONTENT IN GOD⁉️

Being CONTENT means FOCUSING on GOD at all times and allowing Him to bring everything to fruition in your life‼️

I must admit, there have been many times where I was not at all CONTENT‼️ Sometimes I find myself going right back into that closet of discontentment‼️😩🤦🏾‍♀️

When it comes to me being SINGLE, I get very AGITATED with GOD and ask a million questions and also DOUBT HIS PLANS or PURPOSE concerning ever receiving a POTENTIAL MATE‼️ This is one area of my life that I honestly have just said FORGET IT and I DON’T CARE! 🤷🏾‍♀️ It’s the reality of my thoughts and feelings. Everything else has a way of lining up‼️

My sister/friend once told me (about a month ago) that when I have that attitude of not caring and not believing that God will manifest a mate in my life, that the same attitude will dwindle down into other areas of my life‼️

I have a tendency to sometimes try to strong arm God, if you will, when things don’t happen the way I want them too or when things fall completely through‼️ My flesh tends to fully take over when I don’t feel God moving as fast as I would want Him‼️ I spoke on that rebellious spirit once before and let me tell you…trying to MANIPULATE God and take matters in your own hands will NEVER allow you to come out VICTORIOUSLY‼️ You know what it feels like⁉️ Just think on the worse whoopin you ever received as a child and multiply that times ten‼️ 😂😂😩 That’s how it feels for me when I decide to defy God and call myself being mad‼️ What does it prove⁉️ NOTHING…except you still gone have to wait on GOD’S TIMING. It literally just pushes back the blessings that could have been at the next stop sign‼️

The single life is far from fun, but I am learning to truly be content in this season of my life!!! Granted you would think I would be even more okay with it being that it has been 10 years, but I am literally getting to the point of my life where I can only embrace this moment and enjoy this moment of being single and just being Me.

I need to learn to be more CONTENT with my life and with God because the longer I WORRY and STRESS about things I can’t CONTROL, the more I allow the enemy a STRONGHOLD in my life!

There will be times when we just are not satisfied with the way that our lives are going and we seek change‼️During that time of seeking change we have to really be ONE with GOD‼️ When we’re not content AND leave GOD out, we are definitely going to slam face first to the ground.

What to do when feelings of discontentment tries to overtake you:

◦ Pray and Seek God to help you find the central issue that is causing discontentment

◦ Fast to hear more clearly from God

◦ Get around faith-filled people who won’t allow you to stay in the slumps

◦ Find a hobby to keep your creative spunk

◦ Find seminars and classes to help fine tune your craft

◦ Get up under the WORD…A faith filled church that’s gonna spark your spirit to go harder for God

◦ Start to serve in your local church or in the community

◦ See a therapist

◦ Set realistic goals that will keep you constantly moving forward.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE…CONTENT‼️ It’s totally up to you on how you’re gonna live your life! We can choose to be MISERABLE and REGRET each day or we can have an EXPECTANT and GRATEFUL ATTITUDE, knowing that God is going to make things happen‼️

“We have to EXPECT God to be for us, in order to have a fully CONTENT life‼️”

In other words…Are you TRUSTING GOD or NOT⁉️

Choose to praise God and live for Him no matter what situations take place in your life!

Moving out of your comfort zone may hurt a little, but in the end it will be soooo WORTH IT‼️
