Content! Really? What was I thinking?

I was reading a blog post earlier this week and the person mentioned their word for the year.  OMG!  I had a word for this year!  I had totally forgotten about it.  I've done quarterly check ups on my New Year's resolutions - so I keep those in mind, but I'd totally forgotten about my word for this year.

My word for this year is content.  And right now I am finding it very difficult to be content.  We've had some family turmoil which has resulted in my youngest daughter moving away from home.  I wish I could be content with how 'content' she is able to be.

I am content with my life.  I am content with my job - most days.  I am content with my marriage.  I am finding it hard to be content with someone not living up to their potential.  Why is that?  Why can't I be content?  Why is it so important to me that someone else succeed?

Right now my word of the year is not bringing me peace.  Nothing is really bringing me peace.  Thank goodness the Lord does not give us more than we can handle.  That is the only thing that brings me peace.

Is anyone else out there wrestling with their word of the year.  I feel like that's what I am doing - we're in battle.  LOL  And so far - I am winning - content is not.  ;-)

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope everyone has a great day.

1 Thessalonians 5:16 - 18  Rejoice always;  pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;  for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
