I have many dreams. Big ones; small ones. Easy ones; hard ones. Realistic ones; seemingly-impossible ones. Dreams that are travel-related; dreams to do little things around my home. Dreams of my career; dreams of how to serve God better.
Some days, dreams seem far-off and unattainable - it's easier to dream than do. Other days, I just want to buckle down and work hard to achieve my dreams.
Sometimes I am overwhelmed with a sense of contentment. I love my life! I have a cosy home with all my worldy possessions displayed for me to enjoy. I am studying toward a career that I really, really want. I have a husband who loves me to the moon and back. I know, 100%, that my heavenly Father is with me no matter what season of life I am in.
|Just for a laugh - Oscar in his element. He sure looks content!|
All of these things lead me to sigh a huge sigh of contentment.
"...I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
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... "
~Philippians 4:11b-12a, NIV
Contentment and dreams.
I have both; yet I want to be more content even while I am striving for my dreams.
What are you dreaming of?
Are you content in your life?
