I have been sharing about the deep form of contentment that I like to call “Settledness”, and about how I used to be anything but settled.
Settledness has not been something I’ve just “grown into” but rather something I’ve had to fight for.
I’ve had to actively wage war to get to this place, but the battle was beyond worth it.
In a coming post, I’ll be sharing some practical ways I’ve fought this battle, but because settledness is a fight lacing together my mental and spiritual and emotional health, here are some lessons I’ve had to learn along the way.
1️⃣ Triggered Isn’t the Same Thing as Angry or Inconvenienced
2️⃣ Contentment Isn’t an Emotional High
3️⃣ Awareness Can Result in Self-Absorption & a Lack of Grace
Stay tuned for a few more lessons I’ve learned and then some practical ways I’ve waged this war.
And, no matter where you’re at in this battle…
Keep fighting the good fight.
I can promise you, without hesitation, not only that it’s worth it but also that nothing is wasted.
God makes something out of your courage and faithfulness and willingness that is far greater than the sum of its imperfect parts.
Let my life, and the settledness I am dwelling within serve as proof that beauty really, truly does come from ashes and that His grace really, truly is sufficient.
Don’t give up. ♥️
