Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

The Virtue of Contentment / WK 5 / headed towards the prize

As we are coming to the end of our study together,

I am prayerful that the Lord has kept you close. That He has increased the desire of your heart to seek Him…moment by moment, day by day.

Practicing His presence….pausing to be still, receive, and move forward.

As we are one with Christ (John 17) as He is one with the Father & we can stand confident in our inheritance… & the promise of our righteousness and fullness in Christ. (Ephesians 1) With our eyes on this “prize,” (Phil 3:14) we can rest in our weakness, as God makes them His strength. (2 Cor 12:9)

To do this, we must learn to abide….to wait on, rest in, accept, heed, follow, respect obey…. in Christ.

and in the practice of His presence, we will know WHO God is and WHOSE we are…through the revelation of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 2)

and HE will be our portion.

The only portion we need.

As I mourn the loss of loved ones…I look to the Lord for my portion of

strength, endurance, comfort, healing, hope, wisdom, and love.
