Doing P90X I have a new appreciation for God resting on the 7th day. And I praise Him for it!!! I am thankful P90x models creation, even if that was not what they were thinking! I completed the first 6 days and took the 7th day to rest. REST is GOOD!!!!! I am surprised in my ability to walk up the stairs each day to participate in such a sweat inducing task.
Now on to confession time:
Contentment is the state of being contented, being satisfied. My confession: this has not been me at times in my life, even recently. I have had many moments of not being okay with certain things in my life, wanting more or something else. More food, more clothes, more toys, to be more of a stay at home mom, more food, more workout DVDs, more friends, more makeup, more sleep, more time, more,more, and more. Or maybe I wanted less, less weight, less traffic, less work, less stress, less housework, less trials, less clutter. Always wanting. Dissatisfied.
I have been confessing and praying that Jesus would help me with this. I have so many amazing blessings in my life. Have you met my kids or husband?? I want to breath in moments with them with satisfaction. Not stressing over my to do list!! At church this past Sunday our pastor Trey Graham preached on this exact thing. I think God was trying to hit me over the head with a 2x4!!!! Some of the words I heard were “in culture it is circumstantial, in the spiritual world it’s about letting Him be enough.” Trey reminded me that “if I want contentment I need to get rid of the barrier between me and God. I have the answer, am I going to do it or not?? I can be content when I am satisfied in Jesus.”
I know my barriers!!!! And I look forward to knocking them down. As the people on P90x would say BRING IT!!!
