It doesn’t matter whether I’m happy or sad, for feelings come and go…
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord,” Joshua 24:15
It Doesn’t Matter
It doesn’t matter whether I’m happy or sad,
for feelings come and go.
What I hold deep down inside of my heart,
determines what to the world, my actions show.
It doesn’t matter what goes on around me,
there will be good days and there will be bad.
When I think of how God has my life in his hands,
my, how can I be anything but glad?
It doesn’t matter what others say or do,
they have their own lives to live.
My contentment lies in fulfilling God’s purpose for me,
and all of my best to him do I give.

Being content is more than just being happy or full, for our status can turn into being sad or empty in the blink of an eye. Being content means having a peace and joy no matter how we feel or what is going on around us. My contentedness is found in the Lord God Almighty…the one whom I serve, the one whom I live for, the one whom, in fact, is my very life! He supplies all of my needs, he guides all of my days, he directs me in what he has purposed for me to do, he blesses my life. It doesn’t matter then, what is going on inside of me or surrounding me, for in God, my contentedness is sure.
May you take the time to focus on where your own contentedness lies and may your answer lead you to everlasting peace.
Peace and love,
