I need your help. I’ve been struggling a little with contentment lately. Simply put, I’ve been wanting to replace my ’96 Chevy Lumina with a newer, sportier vehicle. The plan is to wait until my wife’s minivan is paid off in about 20 months.
Unfortunately, the Bling Bling Assassin has shown up. A few weeks ago I noticed a gorgeous blue Mazda 3 at a car lot near my house. After a few days of noticing it, I stopped by just to see how much it was. I sat in it. I kicked the tires. I fell in love…
So, I’m hoping that I can talk one of you into buying it, so I won’t have to look at it anymore. It’s a 2008 Mazda 3 with just under 23,000 miles. Priced at $17,988. It’s available at Saturn of Wichita.
OK, so maybe that doesn’t actually deal with the issue…
You are my portion, O Lord;I have promised to obey your words.
“You are my portion, O Lord…” That really hit me hard. God is everything that we need. When we lose sight of that, we start to struggle with a lack of contentment. The Bling Bling Assassin shows up to kick our butt.
There have been times in the past when I’ve had to stop looking at the Sunday sales ads and catalogs in order to regain control of my contentment. I think that it’s time again. A Musician’s Friend catalog showed up in the mail today. It’s going in the trash.
Do you struggle with contentment? Feel free to share your struggles.
