Living A Simple Life-Part 65: Simple Contentment

Recently, I’ve had a few conversations with friends who’ve asked, “So when do you think the baby is coming?” It is so sweet to see them excited about our new little blessing, but honestly, I have to say, “I don’t know.” :)

I am content to wait for this baby’s birthday, and to see how God brings him/her into the world in His perfect time. In a recent devotional reading, I was encouraged to continue in this simplicity of daily waiting, as I cover my little one in prayer.

“Be content with what each day brings, rejoicing in your God, for surely He shall deliver you. He is the One who has brought you here…

Do not question and do not doubt. Each day holds some small joy that shall escape you if you are preoccupied with tomorrow.

Nothing daunts your Father…

Do not walk in the path of human reason, and resist the pressures that would project you into conjectures about the future. Live one day at a time! Simply striving to bring joy to your Father’s heart is enough to keep you occupied. For you know that He loves you, and you will find your peace as you rest in Him.”
