With the Christmas season upon us, I have been thinking about my Mom.
Here is the devotional she had read the morning that she died.
She left it on the couch for us to find.
At the time we continued to pray for her healing.
However, I think my mom came to terms with the fact that her healing
would be a healing of the inner heart and that her physical healing
would be when she stood before Christ. The devotional is a bit old
school in its writing, but definitely still has something to say to me.
(Sorry about the spacing...not sure what happened.)
I have learned,
to be content whatever the circumstances.
Your present situation may not be to your liking.
Perhaps you are dissatisfied and discouraged.
Put the matter in God’s hands. If He wants you elsewhere,
He will lead you there, providing you are
amenable to His will.
But perhaps He wants you where you are.
In that case He will help you to adjust to the situation.
He will make you content, even grateful for present opportunities.
Learn the great art of doing the best
you can, with what you have, where you are.
When you do this, you learn how to reach a better condition
or how to make your present situation a better one.
