Today is one of those Blue Collar Days. Do you know what I mean? No real deep thoughts, no real challenging questions – not even any goofy pictures from the past – just a cold winter day in February. One of those days that reminds you are still deep in winter, after you been teased by spring. Its a day that you just get up, and ‘do what you got to do’.
Its sort of like my Facebook status lately – or lack of Facebook status. Just living life, no cool trips, no out of the ordinary funny thought that will get someone to comment. Its a Blue Collar Status – “Just Living Life”
So, to check this out this morning, I interrupted my beautiful wife’s morning routine and asked her for her favorite verse. After getting a brain dump on the unit she is going to teach and her lesson plan for the day – as she was deep in thought – deep in just doing it thought. She said, I don’t have a favorite, but how about Phil 4:13, its something about being content! How fitting.
10I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13I can do everything through him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:10-13 (New International Version)
