Within the past few months I've come to realize what it's like to be truly content with what I have in this world. I have no need for the latest technology or gadgets. I have no desire to have a high paying job. I have enough good close friends. Most importantly I have Christ. I couldn't ask for anything more. He is all I need. He is in control of everything. I'd rather have Him in control of my life than me. I'm not saying I can't take of myself. All I'm saying is that life with Him is so much better. Without Him it's terrible. Since I've opened up to Him my life has gotten so much better. I hope that it is the same way for you. If not, then I encourage you to invite Him into your life. He can make it better if you willingly let Him. He was with me in my life's hardships. He can be with you in yours too.
