September 2020

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

September is a special month, a month that often brings change; changes in schedule, changes in activities, changes in relationships. We will have to wait and see what changes COVID-19 will bring.

We are not always comfortable with changes. The old saying is true: “As a rule, we play the fool. When it’s hot, we want it cool. And, when it’s cool, we want it hot. Always wanting what is not.”

We are not always comfortable with changes. The old saying is true: “As a rule, we play the fool. When it’s hot, we want it cool. And, when it’s cool, we want it hot. Always wanting what is not.”

My favorite verse about change is found in Philippians 4:11b-13: “Not that I am referring to being in need; for I have learned to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

Contentment is based in gratitude that is not dependent on external circumstances. As we go through changes in life, may we hold fast to our faith, so as to not miss out on the beauty, and the gifts we receive throughout the changes of our lives.
