More, More, More

February 15, 2012

Now that my daughter is learning to talk, she has adopted a favorite word: more. She will say “more” and point to toast with jam. She held out her palm and said “More!” when my husband gave her some coins for her piggy bank. She even exclaimed, “More Daddy!” one morning after her father left for work.

Like my little one, many of us look around and call for “more.” Unfortunately, enough is never enough. We need the power of Christ to break the cycle so that we can say with Paul, “I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content” (Phil. 4:11).

The phrase “I have learned” tells me that Paul did not meet every situation with a smile. Learning contentment required practice. His testimony included ups and downs ranging from snake bites to soul-saving; false accusations to founding churches. Yet he claimed that Jesus was the answer to soul-level satisfaction. He said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (v.13). Jesus had given him the spiritual muscle to endure lean times and to avoid the pitfalls of abundance.

If you find yourself angling for “more, more, more,” remember that contentment comes when you have “more” of Christ.

Fret not for want of earthly things;
They’ll never satisfy.
The secret of contentment is
To let the Lord supply. —D. De Haan

True contentment is not dependent on anything in this world.

Read: Philippians 4:10-20

I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. —Philippians 4:11
Bible in a year:
Numbers 34-36

Sorry I’m late...I’ve been arguing for 20 minutes that someone got paid correctly per her timesheets. *sigh*

AND...I didn’t input the timesheet. She needs to go talk to her supervisor and figure it out. There is nothing I can do.

You Are a Nonchalant Valentine
You're happy to celebrate Valentine's Day if your sweetie is into it, but it's really not your thing.
You think love transcends commercial holidays, and you definitely don't put a lot of stock in V-Day.

Your perfect Valentine's Day date is low key and easy... No gifts if you can help it.
You think it's a lot more meaningful to spend a quiet night at home together than to go to a fancy restaurant.

Okay, Well I guess this sums it up. LOL

You Are an Adventurous Valentine

Your heart soars whenever you have the chance to do something new, and that goes double for Valentine's Day. You would love excitement and novelty to celebrate this special day. You especially love surprises!

Your ideal Valentine's Day is unconventional, quirky, and not traditionally romantic by any means. You don't like a lot of pressure on V-Day. You just want to have some fun!

You also can't stand the idea that you need to be in a relationship to be happy. In fact, you really resent that. For you, the perfect Valentine's Day is to forget that it even exists. Your normal life is nice enough as is.

Sorry -full text is:

As far as you’re concerned, Valentine’s Day could cease to exist and the world would be a better place for it.
You don’t hate love and romance, but you hate the commercialization of it.

You also can’t stand the idea that you need to be in a relationship to be happy. In fact, you really resent that.
For you, the perfect Valentine’s Day is to forget that it even exists. Your normal life is nice enough as is.
