THE JOURNEY PT 6

quill-pen-and-inkwell


6. Contentment. This may be the fruit of step five through which God becomes greater, being-with-God becomes more the point than anything else, and there is less of the push to ‘do something’ or try to ‘be someone.’

Larry writing now:

Now I am learning to B content, the word says contentment with Godliness is of great reward, also its says be content with such things as you have.

841. autarkeia ow-tar’-ki-ah from 842; self-satisfaction, i.e. (abstractly) contentedness, or (concretely) a competence:–contentment, sufficiency.

For me now I am satisfied with GODS sufficiency and I don’t feel the need to try and do something or B somebody, and GOD is becoming more and more.

After traveling the world and being busy in mission work for many years it took awhile to realize what was happening, it was a change of seasons (fall to winter) and one I frankly did not see coming at the time.

Now I am embracing it wholeheartedly and its a great time to get to know HIM and the power of HIS resurrection, its not the time to B producing fruit, its the time when it looks like on the outside anyway, that all is over and done, dead, and dormant.

But on the inside there is still life and in fact that life is becoming bigger and bigger, as now I have so much time to enter into a deeper dimension of life in Christ not from a doing perspective but from a being perspective.

Will there B another spring time season in my life, He knows, and if there is…great and if there isn’t great…I am content, and will keep seeking Him either way.

7. Vision Renewed. The final step (to-date) is a vision that is re-shaped by all of the steps mentioned. It is more of God and less of Roger. When I begin walking the faith steps this time, doors open, things happen, and it is much more about Him. He has re-formed everything in a way that I could have never imagined nor done on my own. It is a vision that He has inspired and then placed me in the right places to see it come to pass. Challenges still? Plenty? Heartbreaks and disappointments still? All the time. But coming from a place of deeper surrender and clearer dependency, there is the sense that God will do what He needs/wants/plans to do. I can let go more than ever and just be part of His ride. And, at the end of the day, He will indeed work all things together for the good of his purposes, for my good, and for His glory. (Rodger)

Larry again:

I want to thank again Rodger Thoman for his post about the journey.

If and when #7 happens I will write a post about it for sure.

Until then I will do a series on the TIPPING POINT

What is happening in the world today in the natural is going to shortly begin to happen in the Church, the world is changing like never before and so will the Church, these R very exciting times to B alive.

and remember.

NO ONE CARES HOW MUCH YOU KNOW…..
