This past week I had the opportunity to hang out with some of the coolest girls on the planet. They happen to be 4th & 5th graders at a local elementary school where we have the chance to go into the school and participate in an after school club where we share the Gospel of Jesus, much like an electric Sunday school class.
The lesson was centered around contentment and I challenged them to “doodle” the verse for me so that I could hang them on my fridge as a reminder to me to be content in “any and every situation.”
As we chatted about the secret about being content, they asked me, “Ms. Lori, have YOU learned the secret?”
“I’ve learned the secret girls, but I still have to work VERY hard every single day to be content and live that out in “any and every situation.” I told them in complete transparency that sometimes I’m not content…I’ve learned the secret, but it takes practice, LOTS of practice AND a relationship with Jesus…which is why I was blessed to have the doodles hang on my fridge. Doodles that reminded me a time or two this week to turn to the “secret.” Doodle verses that reminded me, I’m never too old for a reminder of my own. This one is for the girls!
As we move into what we know will be a holiday season filled with plenty of reasons to be “discontent” this verse seves as a reminder to all of us where true contentment lies. It’s not wrapped up in a bow or determined by those around you, the “secret,” died for you.
Welcome to WFW!
There are very few rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself thorough. We marvel at the creativity that participants post with this meme. We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that non-biblical resources not be used.
WFW is not about books, authors, artists.. it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word.
