Some of you may have seen recently on my Instagram my posting photos of our living room and bedroom. Since Christmas passed I have been in the whole “opening up the space” “changing up the room” spirit. I think after Christmas I really began to feel heavy with the constant state of “limbo” our life has seemed to hover at for the last few years. Waiting on jobs, pending moves and so forth.
It is hard when you live with constant change, to really dwell in the now. I can’t even count how many times I have prayed for the Lord to help me be more content with our circumstances. I think I pray that like every day haha… cause it is an area I struggle in a lot, esp. lately.
So! I have vowed as of the new year, to stop dwelling in the unknown.
Or at least to “try” not to.
One step to help with that is to start making my home a home even though there is a chance we may move this year.
To cherish this beautiful home the Lord has given us… and to decorate it… arrange it, paint it, even if its just in little ways, to be our home NOW.
Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity;
in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry,
both of having abundance and suffering need. I
can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
“And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” …
Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake;
for when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Cor. 12:9-10
