Image bearers of God
Godliness with contentment is great gain in deep, hurtful circumstances. But it is also great gain in the daily grind of life. With lesser stressors, it is still life giving to remember these truths. I am devoted to God, and I want His kingdom to come in all its glory. Yet I am stressed with the little ways my life does not yet reflect His reign. In my own heart, the answer is to lean into Him, confident that He has sufficiently supplied me through His Spirit to do good and not evil in big or small stressful situations. I am confident too that King Jesus is coming again to make all things right. The story is not yet finished.
