Winsome Wednesday - Content leads to ....

I decided to play around with my 'word' for the year, CONTENT, and this is what I came up with:

C entred in Christ
O bedient
N ew of heart
T rusting His word
E mpty of self
N ot fearful
T hankful....

Isa 26 v 3:  You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. 

C.O.N.T.E.N.T ..... leads to peace, His perfect peace

My encouragement to you, as it is for myself, choose to be "content" in all circumstances.  It leads to His peace, perfect peace!

So what can you come up with for your word for the year, or any word for that matter?  Do you accept my mini challenge?  :)

God bless
Tracy
