6 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him,
7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. - Colossians 2:6-7
Spending a week meditating on this verse has impacted my heart in such a positive way. Walking through this difficult week and having thankfulness in the forefront of my mind every day has opened my eyes to all the little discontents I have in my life, the places my heart complains because I don't have my way, and to all the places I shift my focus off of Him and on to my fears and worries.
When you ask Him to show you your heart, He will open your eyes to what you've been blind to seeing yourself. We live in a world that breeds discontent, fueled by fear. Pay attention - it’s remarkable how quickly we go to complaints when things start going wrong. When the waters rise, our eyes focus on what needs to change instead of focusing all He has done for us.
Be content with what God has given you, and be thankful. He is so good and He is so faithful to us, we have nothing to complain about.
Press on ~ you are loved 💗
