Hearing from God

I had an Epiphany the other night about something that God was trying to tell me and I ignored it. (don't we all do that once in a while?) Well, today, He made his message really clear. Even though I know I disobeyed the first time, I'm so thankful that God is moving in my life and convicting me of things.

This morning my bible study on contentment talked about how we (Christians) can not be content if we are unholy. So if we have thoughts actions words etc that are not glorifying our Father, there is unrest in our hearts. Then, reading my bible study on changing my attitude this afternoon I came across Luke 12:15, "And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness,for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses."
Life is not about stuff. The sooner we get that in our heads, the more satisfied our hearts will be." (Lord Change my Attitude)

Here's another reason why we (Christians) lack contentment- we place too much emphasis on THINGS.

This is all ideas we've all heard before, but I am so excited about getting convicted about my life and growing closer to God.

Luke 12:31 and 32 "Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added to you. Do not fear little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."
