Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Nobody got anywhere in the world by simply being content.
Louis L'Amour

I heard a pastor speaking yesterday about his  falling for a time in to the trap of contentment
It took him a while to realize that what he thought was contentment 

Was really compromise

There had been a  time when  he knew he had so much promise

Things he had promised to himself, 

and the world

 and God 

Promises of what he would do with his life

He had been given the ability to keep his promise

And then...he compromised 
and called it contentment
and the promise was no more

He took that burning passion in his soul and used it simply to warm his hands

As he watched life passing by

And it took a great big shove from someone he loved 

to get him back to fulfilling his promise 

His promise had not left him

He had left his promise behind
I am happy to report 
that he and his promise have now been reunited

I learned something from his story

By all means, be content with where you are

If where you are is where your promise says you should be.
PS  It is never too late to reunite with your promise
and that's poetiquejustis
 Being confident of this very thing, that he who has begun a good work in you 
will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:  
Philippians 1:6
