Are You Content with God’s Plan for Your Life?

Godliness with contentment???

Today many women suffer with not being content. I just came across this poem that was written by a fourteen-year-old boy.  Doesn’t this poem show how restless and discontent the human heart really can be?

It was spring but it was summer I wanted; the warm days and the great outdoors.

It was summer but it was fall I wanted; the colorful leaves and the cool dry air.

It was fall but it was winter I wanted; the beautiful snow and the joy of the holiday season.

It was now winter but it was spring I wanted;  the warmth and the blossoming of nature.

I was a child but it was adulthood I wanted; the freedom and the respect.

I was twenty but it was thirty I wanted; to be mature and sophisticated.

I was middle-aged but it was twenty I wanted; the youth and the free spirit.

I was retired but it was middle-age I wanted; the presence of mind without limitations.

My life was over but I never got what I wanted

Taken from a message by Charles R Swindoll  “Who Gets the Glory?” 

“Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Thee.”     —St. Augustine

Man finds it hard to get what he wants, because he does not want the best;  God finds it hard to give, because He would give the best, and man will not take it. ”    —George MacDonald
