Contentment Even in a Crisis

I’ve been given some awesome opportunities to serve. I’m amazed at God’s grace toward me lately. I know refinement will be part of the rest of my life. It’s great to know there is a purpose and love is behind it!

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8)

This is equivalent to what modern science calls “mindfulness.” That is being aware of what triggers you or sets you on a habitual path of dysfunction or self-defeating behavior. This vigilant self-monitoring combined with meditating on Christ throughout the day is transformational and sometimes results in signs and wonders occurring in support of such a one’s service for the Lord. Such a lifestyle deepens the knowledge of God and changes lifelong self-defeating ways of thinking and doing that mar the image of God in believers.

This is what God has been teaching me lately. I am simply amazed and awestruck by the One who is truly the only One worthy to be called AWESOME!
