I had a wedding to attend this past weekend, about 4 hours from where I currently live. As my family and I packed ourselves into the car and started the drive, I settled into my seat.
We discussed our Lord Jesus, we discussed His plans for our lives, and I found such contentment knowing I’m in the palm of His hand. Time with my beloved family was wonderful, even in the midst of a torturous 4 hour-long drive. As I looked out the window to the gorgeous traveling day we had been blessed with, I truly felt such contentment wash over me.
Sometimes, our heart longs for things, even though we are content where we are. It was so nice attending a wedding and being glad that I’m single, even though my heart desires to have a best friend in my spouse someday.
At one point, the song, “All the single ladies” started and I jumped out of my seat and on to the dance floor with the other single ladies. As crazy as it sounds, I felt such freedom as I sang “If you liked it then you should’ve put a ring on it.” Yes. You should have ex-boyfriend. But you didn’t. And I’m glad.
I finally feel like I’m reaching the top point of this huge mountain. The climb was rough, but the view was worth it.
Contentment is a beautiful thing, indeed!
