Love? or Lonliness?

1 Timothy 6:6
But godliness with contentment is great gain


Don’t allow comparison to replace contentment!
James 3:14-15 (NIV)
14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.

There is peace in Jesus, and Jesus alone – and there is a place of contentment in Him, that nothing on earth can satisfy.

No earthly relationship, no movie, entertainment, sport, or activity will scratch that deeper itch down inside. Jesus alone can do that. Problem is, sometimes we need to slow down to speed up. It takes time to get quiet and alone with him, and allow Him to sooth our savage hearts, and to fill every creak and crevice in the deep places in our soul. From this place of rest, there is direction, purpose, power, and true fulfilment – for He is a wonderful Lord!

Feel like your life is on a treadmill? Running hard but going no where?


Try doing it Jesus way, seeking Him first each day, doing a yearly Bible reading plan, and actually making progress on your God given purpose, dreams and destiny.

Let’s Pray:
“Jesus, I need you, now! Prince of Peace, meet with me, in my passion, frustration, and selfish ambition. May I rest in Your leading, free from the tyranny of my own inner drives, and the expectations of others, rule and overrule me Lord, and bring again to me, your person, presence, intimacy, and peace. Amen”
