my word for 2014: content

DSC02092

Content in my life: to enjoy and relax and breathe and love and give.

Content with my God: He has given me His grace and lived and died and was resurrected for His glory and my sins so that I may have abundant life.

Content with my husband: not wanting or expecting perfection, investing time in him and loving him unconditionally.

Content with my children: appreciating and enjoying and watching and loving their perfection and imperfections.

Content with my role: to live for others and not myself and to cherish that privilege.

Content with my body: knowing that now more than ever, that though I am broken and unwhole, I am the daughter of the King.

Content with my things: that I don’t want more, but give more and want less.

Content with my hobbies: that I would sing more this year, garden more, run more, read more, and that my blog will never take time away from my children or husband.

Content with Bible reading: I am going to read Beth Moore’s Praying God’s Word Day by DayBelieving God Day by Day, and Breaking Free Day by Day. {These literally only take two minutes to read every day, very doable — but very rich — and they are free to Kindle right now on Amazon until January 10!  I will pick the one I like the most as the next few days and weeks pass so I don’t get too overwhelmed with all three!} And I will take the memorizing John challenge with Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience {this includes beautiful free printables}.

 

I have seen some of my favorite bloggers discuss their words of the year.  I didn’t think I wanted to have one.  But every time I came upon a post, the word “content” was screaming at me.  This word truly chose me.  I don’t know how often I will come back to this work here on the blog — perhaps with monthly updates on being content.  All I know is that right now, Jesus and my family are enough for me.

I will frame this photo of our Christmas tree (before we cut it) and put it on my dresser.  And I will remember that I am blessed beyond measure.  I owe my God, and myself, contentment and gratefulness for all the blessings He has given me.
