Chasing Contentment

Thursday, August 18

I'll take little bits of encouragement wherever I can find them. I don't necessarily believe that God programs the songs on the radio to encourage me, but I do believe that He can use whatever my heart is open to at the time, whatever allows Him a little closer to my needs.

On the XM this morning, I heard the Nickleback song, "Someday," and its refrain struck me. While the song is about a relationship, the refrain could apply to anything. At this moment, it feels like my life.

Someday, Somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when
Things are going to be difficult for us for a while because of outside circumstances, but I know that it will be okay at some point. And I know that I'm going to be asking God when, when will it be all right. But I also like remembering that it will be all right at some point. I like knowing that God already knows when this will be the most difficult and when it will be finished.

As long as He knows and I trust Him to make it right, then we'll be okay, I think.

LOL Other than the fact that I want, and cannot have, an XM radio, I was encouraged by your post. I truly was. Thank you for listening to the Lord. Thank you for sharing here like you do.

Thank you for the blogging encouragement. My hope is that God can work through me if I am open about what He's doing in my life.

As for the XM, I got it for Mike for Valentine's Day, and he put it in my car for a trip, and it just somehow never made it back to his truck. :) Lucky me.
