Monday Motivation: I Just Want You…

Hey loves!

Quick post today!

Today’s post comes from a total place of submission. This wasn’t the post I was going to post today. But in my quiet time with God this evening, He dropped the song ” Just Want You” by Travis Greene into my spirit. ( BTW Travis Greenes Album The Hill has been blessing me for almost 2 years now, If you haven’t listened to it, please get it! Trust me. It’s right there!)

The lyrics of the song are so simple. They simply say:

So take everything
I don’t want it
I don’t need it, God
Won’t you take everything
I don’t want it
I don’t need it, God
I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
We just want you
We just want you
We just want you
We just want you

Not only am I learning to be content with  what I have, God is molding me to be content with what I don’t! That’s huge!

What is the actual meaning of content?  According to dictionary.com, the adjective content means to be in a state of peaceful happiness. To be content in the season in that God has placed you in, is something a lot of people have a hard time with.

Thinking about being content leads me to think of the story of Job. ( If you get a chance , read all about him in the Old Testament section of the bible:) )

Job was a man who God allowed to have everything taken from him, yet in his state of grief and pain and despair, never allowed his faithfulness to waver.  He lost his health, he lost his children and yet still he worshipped! His very own wife told him to  “curse God and die” ( Job 2:9) How, may you ask, could someone who has lost everything precious to him still find the heart to worship…. Because he was content! Not content with the fact that he was losing everything, but content in knowing that God he served had already written his story and exercised his faith to trust the season he was experiencing was for a purpose!

Its hard to be content with something or in a troublesome season when you don’t know why it’s happening.  Let’s face it, we are humans, and sometimes our flesh takes over and our spiritual side takes a back burner.  We are not always able to see the big picture and are often impatient to let God’s plan play out without meddling somehow!

How many of us Christians can say that if God decided to take everything we have away from us right now, that we would still trust him and serve him? Food for thought…

I pray that God gives me ( and humans in general ) a heart like Job . A heart so wrapped up in the grace of God to not give up on Him, no matter how hard life gets, because if you look at the end of Job’s story, everything he lost, he got back two-fold!  Sometimes the blessing is at the end of the storm, but are you strong enough to weather it…

Take everything! I just want You Jesus!

Have a blessed Monday!
xoxo
