Learning To Be Content

There was a time when I would travel to many different countries to minister to others with the power and love of God , but now I am content to stay and bloom where I am planted.

I Am Content To Stay

In the quiet of the evening - my heart is calm
And still - after the hustle and bustle of my life -
Which has left its footprint of experience on the
Doormat - where this wanderer's boots remain - but
Whose feet no longer fill .
No longer yearning to go here and there - to
Foreign climes - but content to stay - and be
A flower in the home patch now - to help those
In this needy place - and times.
But - no need for sorrow or regret - this is not
A loss or backward step - to want to sit - and be at
Rest - at Homely's door.
As there are those who are adventuring - with compass
Set - for far off Isles - and distant shore - who
May not feel the need to stay - and bend the knee
For those at home - as I do now - but
All is well - and all in all - I am content - yet -
Not in passive inactivity - but -
I accept my lot - for which - the
Good Lord - in His kindness chooses
To bestow - with love
On me .

Sometimes the Lord would have us venture afar for Him , but sometimes He would have us stay in our own back yard ... but , wherever He wants us to be .....He always wants us to be content .

God bless yo all .
