#morethanaframe: CONTENTMENT

Contentment is a silly thing. We often times have a hard time feeling it, even when all we need is right in front of us. Thank you to those of you who challenged me this week with your responses to the prompt. It was a prompt I needed more than I thought.

Again, I'm challenged by #morethanaframe 's prompt of #contentment which, whenever I am at a loss, it's a wakeup call that it's something to think more on and work on too. My first thought was this: "Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere" (Psalm 84:10 a) There a bunch of things that calm the anxiety: writing, reading, talking with my favorite people, photography, work (sometimes, ha!), eating #foodasmedicine & so much more. But calming the anxiety or shutting down the comparison game is different than stopping the anxiety in its tracks and stepping off the court of the comparison game completely. That, for me, can only be found when I am realizing that my relationship with God is IT. Period. That relationship is MORE important than anything else in my life and there is where true #contentment is found. So I spend time in the Word and Journaling about what is he teaching me or just talking to him through my writing. And of course, I could do it and should do it more often. More time with Him makes me able to say, "Better is ONE DAY with YOU than a thousand anywhere else." I can say it and mean it. And I am content. No matter where I am in life or where I am living or where I am working or any of the blogging stuff. Thanks @thatsageblog and @mrthomasandme
