Tuesdays Unwrapped - Contentment

tuesdays unwrapped at cats

November is the month many people (at least Americans) focus on being thankful as Thanksgiving stands out on the calendar.  Handprint turkeys, pumpkin pie anticipation, over-the-river-and-through-the-woods-to-grandmother's-house-we-go, all cause many of us to make our thankful list to share at the table on Turkey Thursday.
Yet looming in my head is something related to thankfulness - contentment - and Alicia Chole's question, "When is enough, enough?" and definition, "Contentment - everything you long for is contained in what you actually have."

So what do I have today, wrapped up and contained in these four walls of my house or the four chambers of my heart, that I have longed for?

  1. Hmmm... Contentment!!! I'm asking God to renovate my heart so that I can truly say "Jesus is enough". I want to, I do. But my life says otherwise. If all was taken from me... family, friends, shelter, food ~ would I still be able to say "I have enough in Him!" Oh, to be content in Christ and to say enough is enough in HIM.
