“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Philippians 4:12
I know a single woman whose child has many medical problems and they just found a mysterious growth taking up most of her eight year olds abdomen, but she watches her kids working hard on their home school studies, prays, and at such times is content in the Lord.
I know another single woman who suffered a bitter divorce and lives alone in dire poverty, but she praises God often, turns on her favorite TV preacher, and at such times is content in the Lord.
I know a young adult who suffers from sometimes crippling depression and learning disabilities, but I watch her walk slowly to the altar for the Eucharist and at such times is content in the Lord.
I know another young adult who is sometimes paralyzed by her Obsessive Compulsion Disorder which makes her avoid certain chairs, graveyards, and satanic images in terror, but she mails her tithe to an anti abortion group and to elderly soviet Jewish charities and at such times is content in the Lord.
I know a woman who has endured two decades of a terrible arranged marriage, but inexplicably she has moments of God given peace and has found a great Bible study, and at some words of God is content in the Lord.
In the peace that transcends all understanding, we visit: we rest. In God’s peace we find contentment despite swirling worlds of difficulty and dilemmas. In the Lord we can be truly content.
