Quote of the Day

“Be content where you are while you pursue where you want to be. Contentment is a place of peace and hope for tomorrow, not a place of settled in the moment.”

#QuoteoftheDay for November 15 - Find a place of contentment

Moment of HOPE

Be Content Where You Are

When you know your unique design then it is easier for you to stand firm in your walk. When you are standing firm then you can rest content even when things aren’t the way you want.

Too often, content is declared as surrender, but contentment is a sign of strength and courage because it is a place of peace despite the circumstances with a focus on the hope of what tomorrow will show.

Being content in your going will allow you to be daring to pursue your place in purpose.

Challenge for Intentional Actions

Be Content Where You Are

Accept what is – because it is.
Hope for more – because there is more.
Let the hope be the focus and create the next little bit for your journey.

59 – Learn to Stand

We learn to stand when we learn to be flexible, focused, and grounded in hope. The sand is constantly shifting and life is always spinning so you need to create a foundation strong enough to brace you up against the storms.

Growing HOPE Daily - 5 points - learn to stand

Five Ways to Learn to Stand

  • First, know your facts. The facts of who you are and WHOSE you are should be the foundation information that you use to stand.
  • Second, believe in your focus and the unique journey that you are on. You are not like anyone else and your focus will not be like anyone else. That is okay.
  • Third, expect the opposition. When you do what you are uniquely designed to do there will be people that don’t understand and when people don’t understand they will often oppose. Be prepared.
  • Fourth, build a foundation. You need somewhere to stand if you are going to stand and you better choose a firm foundation or the shifting ground will knock you down.
  • And finally, keep your focus so you don’t lose your way. Know God. Listen to God. Follow God. Although it is a simple idea, it is almost always not going to be sensible to the world.

It is your choice and what you choose will determine the path you walk. When you choose to focus on the world, the world will allow you to sink – and most likely the world will be active in shoving you under. But when you choose to focus on God then the One that calms the storms will also calm your heart and give you the peace to stand strong.

You learn to stand when you choose to have focused flexibility.

  • Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. (Proverbs 30:5) Big fan of facts and recently wrote, “The sustained leader builds the foundation of their platform with facts, not platitudes, emotions, or popular opinions.” So in addition to the emphasis on facts found here, I particularly like the part, “Fourth, build a foundation. You need somewhere to stand if you are going to stand and you better choose a firm foundation or the shifting ground will knock you down.” That is why the Bible verse above came to mind. As always Kathryn, well done.
