The Secret

I was just thinking about the Apostle Paul when he said, “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.” (Philippians 4:12)

Tonight I found myself singing Amazing Grace, just humming away as happy as could be. Now, that isn’t unusual, I am usually humming or singing to myself.

But at the time I realized I was singing, it was about 8:00 pm. I had been at church all day, hadn’t had dinner yet. And there I was, sitting on the floor of the new upstairs bathroom, scrapping paint off of hinges and new tile. And I realized I was as content as I could be.

Paul learned the secret and so have I ,”I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13)

Thank you Jesus for giving me strength.  And for allowing me to be content, whatever my circumstances.
