I`ve told you before that my mom has this radio in the kitchen tuned in to only one station, running for the entire day. I don`t know the program schedule, I don`t even know who`s gonna speak but every time I would cook, I always hear about things that stays in my mind long after I`ve finished cooking.
Well, today… I learned about contentment. One of the hosts there told about her story of not being able to have a baby. Carmen told about the day she was dismissed from the hospital after an operation. The other women going home had babies in their laps. But her hands were empty.
Carmen said she and her husband were happy being just with each other`s company. She was laughing the whole time but you know that deep in her heart she longs to have a baby of her own. One day she told his husband she was not privileged of seeing the baby look like him.
Carmen believes that because of what she had to go through, God had enabled her to comfort others who are not having children, just like her. She said it was not easy and she didn`t want to make it sound easy. It is a struggle. But she trusts God because He fills the void in her life.
Many times, I do complain about many things. I wish I could have this, I wish could have that. If only I had a better house, more clothes, a bigger salary. If only I was born rich. Every desire could run in your head if you would only start to look in what you lack in life.
But then again, we should be content and see the brighter side of things, the blessings we have everyday.
I may not drive the latest BMW and I may not go to the most expensive school.
But God is enough.
When I desire many things.
When I couldn`t have them all.
When He couldn`t give me the desires of my heart just yet.
He is enough.
He satisfied me.
