Your Best…

“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are – no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.”
Matthew 5:5

As children we can all remember playing on the seesaw. At any given moment you would either be up in the air or down on the ground. If you stood carefully with a foot on each side of the center you could steadily balance the board and the ends of the seesaw became stable.

Today’s verse reminds us that balance is essential in life. Our days of blessing and contentment will offset the days of toil and labor. A balanced life is essential to our health but many things try to hinder it from happening. The ultimate solution to an unbalanced and unhappy life cannot be bought but it can be received.

Here is one key to a contented life. Simply accept who you are! Don’t act like someone else, think less of yourself or overestimate yourself. Just be you! After all you’re exactly who & what God created! He wants to bless your life but he can only bless your real life, not your fake one.This week let’s get ready to experience the presence of God simply by accepting ourselves. Let’s stop striving or underachieving. Let’s just be ourselves. As we accept who we are, we receive a life that is a haven of contentment, peace, health and well-being. This beautiful promise over us will produce an amazing life that can be well beyond what we could ever hope or afford.
