Are you content with your current condition? Are you satisfied with the surviving state of your spiritual status? Are you happy with the happenings in your home? Are you pleased with the present proceedings you’re participating in? Are you joyous on your job? Are you rejoicing in your relationship? Are you content? I’m simply asking if you are happy. You do know that being content is a reward within itself, don’t you? For the bible says in 1 Timothy 6:6 “Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.” Oh, but you’ve probably become so comfortable in conforming that now you’ve become complacent and in your logic of thinking, you’re happy and can no longer see the difference in you being content and complacent but let me tell you! See, being content means to be happy and although being complacent means happy too, it also means to be comfortable in a situation. Oh but get this … Being complacent means that you get so comfortable that you no longer think you can get caught or caught up! Yea, it’s like you being comfortable and happy in your sin that now you’ve forgotten that the act you’re performing is actually a sin until you get caught up. You’ve gotten so complacent walking into the mall, stealing them folks stuff that it’s second nature to you until you’re the feature star in Just Busted on Tuesday. Get out of your complacency!
I know that’s your family church but baby it may be time for you to go. I know you’ve been trying to hold on to that relationship out in public but behind closed doors it’s a war zone, it’s time to let it go. Philippians 4:11 says this, “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” This didn’t say to be complacent, this says in every situation to be content… HAPPY! Stop putting on a show for folk when God is still waiting on you to show up for Him. Stop staying in a comfortable place because your fears have subsided there, step outside of your comfort zone, God has a new position waiting for you over there. Your happiness is over there, your contentment is over there, your piece of mind is over there, your joy is over there, your healing is over there and that breakthrough is over there! Get out of your complacency and get your contentment! Get out of your comfort and get your happiness. I know your boo has made it comfortable and you’re complacent but baby if he can’t wife you, stop letting him take your life! (He who finds a wife …) I know you’ve been trying to make the marriage work but if she can’t have your back, why are you waiting to pack. (God made woman to be a helpmate …) My God! Somebody needs to be hoped today! Get out of your complacency in order to get your happiness back.
