See what’s there.
Smell the breeze.
See the sun.
Sometimes I find myself getting lost in the every day, day-to-day, run-of-the-mill, constant go go go. While I treasure every minute I get to spend with my girls and my husband, I find myself not appreciating it. Not enjoying it. Because I have allowed myself to get lost.
So how do I find myself? How do I enjoy it all again?
Refresh. Look around. Take time. Allow myself to not do it all. Constantly reminding myself that it doesn’t all HAVE to get done. And when I do that, I enjoy life again.
Enjoyment comes not from everything being right but in being content with what everything is. Contentment goes hand in hand with the word enjoy. If you are not content, you will never enjoy anything. God teaches us about contentment through the apostle Paul. Phillipians 4:11-13 is a verse that I memorized years ago and return to again and again.
Contentment is a learned ability. Yes it comes easier to some than to others, perhaps. But all can learn it. If that weren’t true, God would not have given us this direction.
Contentment = the ability to enjoy. So seek God. Seek His wisdom through His word and prayer. Through those who love Him and want to talk with you about Him. Enjoy God and the wisdom He offers. In that enjoyment, you will also find an enjoyment of life. God is good. Enjoy.
