Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content
Philippians Chapter 4 Verse 11
How difficult it is to be content in this ever-changing world of ours. Our times are so unpredictable that it seems that our emotions are on a never-ending roller coaster.
Are you perplexed or in despair dear friend?
Is pain or sorrow your portion?
I have experienced all of the above and many a time a combination of two or three of them at the one time. Recently I suffered a heart attack. I had absolutely no warning that it was going to happen, and I was feeling as fit and as healthy as I had ever felt. The crushing pain in my chest left me in no doubt as to what was happening to me and I did not know whether I was going to live or die.
I had absolutely no fear.
I was as content in Godís hand and in His Will as I have ever been.
In many ways this Web site is the fruit of that heart attack.
We are frail creatures. Most people live their lives as though death were a million light years away. No so my friend, we are each but a breath away from eternity. Are we prepared to meet our God?
I think not of summer holidays or things that are in the future anymore. God has given me today for which I am most grateful and I must do what I can for Him while I remain. I am not morbid, and I am enjoying my life more now than ever, simply because Christ is reigning in my heart and He has top priority in the time remaining on earth. Let Him do with me as He pleases.
