A few hours from now and it’s Christmas! As I was prepping up for our Noche Buena, I heard the brother tell something about things he wanted to do, gadgets he wanna buy with his money. I stayed quiet and continued on what I was doing.
Thoughts start to crawl in my head, “if only I have the same resources (financially), then I will buy my own laptop. This past few months has been hard for me. But I know I’ll get by. For years I’ve been trying hard, saving it all to buy this gadget not because I want it, but because I NEED it. Working as a virtual assistant required me to carry out tasks in front of the PC for hours and hours everyday.
With all these mind hubbubs, I asked myself, “What do I really want this Christmas?” I arrived to one prayer and personal request: to be content with what I have, with what God is giving me. Maybe that is just what I need. To use and maximize my resources whichever way I can..and avoid complaining.
Thank You Lord for being a good provider. Make my heart beat for You and Your will alone. Amen.
