One thing I have learned over the years is the blessings of being confidently contented with where the Lord has placed me. Whenever I fight His will for me, I end up being miserable and unhappy. However, when I am content with where I am and know that this is exactly where He wants me, my life is filled with a much greater joy. Of course there are times when God does call you somewhere else, but if He is not calling you elsewhere then why not rejoice in where He has placed you? If I am serving the Lord where He placed me, I can accomplish so much more for Him. It's like a hammer and nail. The nail can try to replace the hammer all he wants, but the progress is going to be WAY slower than if he were doing what he was supposed to do. That's how I feel sometimes. Like that little nail wanting so badly to do the amazing job of hammering all the other nails in and not seeing my great importance in holding a structure together. Nails aren't any less important than the hammer. They just have a different role.
I have learned that I am the happiest when I am following the Lord and am confidently content with where He has placed me. That truly is the happiest place on earth to be. That is where I belong.
