Contented heart

I felt so week this morning but what I had to teach was what I knew God wanted me to  do. So I shared first in Spanish with the children & then with the visitors in English in a second teaching. Returning to my house I immediately was visited by my surgeon. He was worried for me as my hands were just shaking.

Of course there will be more tests done tomorrow.

Sunday afternoon the teams began their ministry to the different age groups.

God describes another heart in the Bible. It is called the contented heart. That means we trust Him. Unhappy couples in marriage think they can just "move" and everything will be ok. But you can change jobs, change housing, change churches and even change city or state but that will never get rid of the unhappiness because unhappiness is inward and not outward.

You move but your discontented heart follows you to that job, church, house, city or state.

Do I really believe that all things happen to the good for those who love God and are called His child? I cannot worry, have envy or bitterness and walk with contentment.

But true contentment arises from a grateful heart.
