Be content so we are not always stretched to the limit

1 john 17

I did not forget to record my joys earlier this week, even though I had a life lesson learned from a pretty messed up night. But as a friend reminded me not long ago:

God is good all the time and all the time, God is good.”

And we are to give thanks all the time and all the time, we are to give thanks.

So being content, dwelling and thanking….

#1270 gift read: memorizing Romans 1:19-20 “since what may have been known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” (how convicting!)
