Thank You Son

"I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am" Philippians 4:11 NASB 

I have thought a lot about our conversation, son, and wanted to add a few additional thoughts with you. 

You mentioned that it has been bothering you that it is easy for those who have everything to talk about God's love and blessings, but for those who have nothing-not so much.

I've come to understand that each of the Lord's children has a different road to travel because our Father knows best and knows what is needed for each of His children to pass through. Life is but preparation for heavenly shores.

One thing came to me after our talk- Paul had no family, home or comforts. He experienced prison, stoning, medical problems yet, be had learned to be content in whatever condition he found himself, whether hungry or full.

Philippians, the fourth chapter reveals this reason for his contentment was simply his personal relationship with Jesus. This overcame all of life's changes by trusting faith in His savior's love and wisdom about what was best for him come what may.

When concern overwhelms focus on what our Lord suffered on the cross to pay for sin and suffering as He conquered death.

Dear Lord help us to remember that You are the way, the truth, and the life and to come to You when we are heavy laden. Thank You, Amen.
