I have discovered that I am not a content person! This is a very sad revelation. How can I not be content in whatever state I find myself (Philippians 4:11), speaking of the emotional state and not the physical state of course! It is also a startling discovery as I have always thought of myself as a happy and cheerful person.
My hubby is 85% sure that we are moving - something that I have desired along time! As soon as I hear the news I immediately start to wax nostalgia on everything California!
Then dear hubby is 50% sure we aren't moving and then I think, WHAT - I was so excited about moving!
Then dear hubby is back to 85% sure we are moving and I decide that there is something wrong in my thinking that must be fixed!
We have a family that is split in location, half in California and half in Texas. If we move to one state we miss the other and vice versa. However if they were all in one state (and I follow my current way of thinking to its logical conclusion), I would probably want to live in another state until I moved there.
I don't want to be a NEVER HAPPY person. I need to figure out how Paul was content even in chains. So that is my search to be content. Have any advice?
