Sometimes in life it’s so difficult to be content. I know it is for me. It seems like I’m always looking forward to the next big thing in life. In junior high, it was high school; now for me, it’s college. Soon it’ll be marriage, then kids, then grandkids…and so on.
But what am I doing today to change the world and enjoy the moments that I am given? I can daydream all I want about my future and what I’m going to do when I get older for God, but what I often don’t realize is that I can do something in the here in now for God–stay open to Him and be a vessel that He works through.
When we as God’s children are open to what He wants to do in our lives, even if we don’t know what that is–God can use us beyond anything we could ask or imagine. And it may seem a little backwards to have the mentality that God can work in us even when we don’t even know what He is working through–but that’s just the way that God works sometimes. His ways are better than our ways, and in the end, they are the best.
So…may I be content in my everyday life and in my everyday walk with God–not forgetting about my future, but living in the moment. May I open up myself–heart, soul, mind, and body–to be used by God. For even if I feel I am nothing, God can always use nothing to do something great for His kingdom.
