Contentment

September 23, 2015

“To be content does not mean to feel content but rather to know that in My Son you have everything you need to live in rhythm with My Spirit in any circumstance of life. In emptiness and brokenness changed by My Spirit into thirst and gratitude, you are able to complete, reveal, and delight My Son.

It is empty and broken people, who at the same time are thirsty and grateful, who discover the power to live in ways they never thought possible.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, God’s Love Letters to You, Page 92

Questions for Reflection:
• What do your heart and mind do with the sentence, “To be content does not mean to feel content”?
• In what ways do you recognize the provision of God in Christ, by His Spirit, being expressed in your life?
• What connection do you see between emptiness and thirst and between brokenness and gratitude?
