Philippians 4:11 NASB "Not that I speak from need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am."I knew they were going fishing but I had to work! Today's Word shares about being content in whatever circumstances we find ourselves, easier said than done! All day long, I kept feeling as if I had been cheated. I had asked off for the day but was refused because of the workload. I knew that they were going fishing and I wanted to go but then realized how blessed I was to have a job so I had to let go of the feeling that I was somehow being cheated! I had been hired, and employed, so thinking that "they owed me" wasn't a good place to be. I was blessed to be able to work and have a decent job and fishing would come another day! Having the mindset to be content with where we are and seeing the blessings from the Lord will help us be content with were we are... the fish will be there when it's our time to fish! peace, tom
