Finding Contentment In Your Season



welcome back to my channel today I'm coming to y'all with a video all about contentment and being content in their season but first and foremost if you are new welcome please give this video a thumbs up if you like it and don't forget to subscribe so you never miss an upload for me I do faith-based videos as well as beauty lifestyle relationship I do a bunch of different videos on my channel and if you enjoy this video please be sure to share with somebody that you think might benefit from it but I really just want to talk about the importance of being content in the season that God has you in right now right in this moment despite what your goals are despite what your dreams are we still need to be content right where we are right now this very day this very minute in the season that God has is in because it's very common that we will focus so much on the finish line and getting to a certain point getting to a certain destination that we lose track of all of the opportunities that God has for us right now I think it's important to really just take a minute and focus on where you are right now what does God want you to do right now exactly where you're at let's say after your job for example every single day you go there you say I'm not supposed to be here this is what God has for me I suppose be doing X Y Z there's just so much more out there for me the people here are treating me right can't stand this job and so on and so forth a lot of people feel that way that's very common way to think about your job oftentimes feeling like when you get the next job it'll be better and you know you just kind of make it happen make it work now until you get there but if you have that perspective you will miss the opportunities that God has for you what if God has you right where you are so that you can be a light to others around you you know what if God has you where you are so that you can speak life to others who are struggling you know what if God has you where you are because he want you to learn how to deal with different personality types maybe he want you to learn how to deal with adversity and we focus so much on getting to the next chapter that we don't prepare ourselves to pass the test that would lead us to the next chapter what is it that you think that God is trying to teach you right where you are what area are you you know more or less struggling with what area has not given to God there's something that God wants you to master right where you are before he moves you to the next season I don't want you to think that you have control over getting to the next season by passing the test you know God is going to do everything his timing and that's how I'm saying all I'm saying is that there's things that you can learn while you're waiting for God to propel you to the next season and you want to be content so contend that if you get a new job or if you don't you're still perfectly fine you want to be so content that while you're waiting to meet your future husband you can still enjoy your life now you don't want to be in a place where you're always chasing something and you've tied your happiness and your joy your contentment to getting that thing because what happens is it's kind of like a treadmill you just keep running keep running keep running trying to achieve all these different things and you're never satisfied because you haven't become content and I can tell you from personal experience that you can get everything that you want and still being unhappy and dissatisfied if you don't learn to be content with what you have right now there are people who are super super rich super powerful have a lot of money but are miserable because they thought that they would find their contentment in worldly earthly possessions so on one hand you have people who are super super rich super dissatisfied with their life because they attributed success money fame for with contentment and they missed the mark because that's not the way that it is and you have people on the other hand who are impoverished and really struggling day to day just to make ends meet and they might have more joy and more peace because they find their strength in the Lord I am a strong believer that there's nothing that you can obtain on this earth no relationship no job no amount of money that will bring you joy and peace and all those things that you want you have to find those within God and that was come through being content so if you're not content with where you are right now that's okay so you just pray and say God please want me to be content and with where I am before you give me the desires of my heart because God is going to give you the desires of your heart but you just have to be ready but the bottom line is whether your circumstances change or they don't you are able to be at peace where you are you're able to experience joy where you are getting to the next season or getting into the next relationship or becoming married is not going to qualify you to be super joyful and super peaceful because there's nothing you can obtain and that will give you that result the only thing that you can do is really seek to know God more and ask him to help you in all these areas because that is where you will find contentment so that's why people go through like great struggles and they are rooted they're going at peace and they have joy because they know that no matter what happens to them on earth God has a final say so I just wanted to end with a scripture and it's Philippians chapter 4 verses 12 through 13 in a sighs I know what it is to be in need and I know what it is to have plenty I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation whether well fed or hungry whether living in plenty or in what I can do all things through him who gives me strength heard that in part before I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me focus on the part where it says Christ strengthens me you can do all things through strengthens you you can't go to your job tomorrow and have the best day ever and nothing change in the natural because God gives you the strength but if you try and do everything on your own strength and you want to become content based on your own ability you're never going to get there but just have faith and know that no matter what happens you're gonna be okay and that God takes care of his children and he will give you the desires of your heart but in the meantime while things are still being worked out while he's still making a way for you you deserve to live a life with peace in your spirit everything is gonna be okay God has not forgotten about you he takes care of his children and that is what he does he's an amazing and awesome father he's not going to forget forget about you don't worry about the things in this world God is going to make a way just have faith in Him have faith and know that all things are gonna work out for your good that is what the Bible says and just know that your strength comes from God and not from yourself if my strength and my ability to get through everyday only came from myself I would be out look I'm just not that strong personally I'm really not that strong but because my strength comes from God I know that he will make a way and that I will be alright even at what I don't feel that way I have to believe that so I'm challenging y'all to do the same thing no matter where you are believe that God is making it away and then you can receive peace in the name of Jesus right where you are because the Bible says so the Bible says that you can receive peace that transcends all understanding so just receive that for yourself comment down below how you remain content in this season that you're in despite where you want to go and thank y'all so much for watching this video and don't forget to give this video a thumbs up subscribe and share this video with whoever you think might benefit from it and I will see y'all at my next one bye

  • Hello Leah!!! I love your videos you’re such a light!!!!😊 Thanks for sharing from your heart in your videos.

  • Hello Leah!!! I love your videos you’re such a light!!!!😊 Thanks for sharing from your heart in your videos.

  • Leah, thank you for the video !! What if the situation that you are in is miserable, how are you meant to be content with that?

  • Thank you lovely for coming forward and share this wonderful, informative, encouraging and empowering message to us all. God Bless You. I was extremely discontent with my life until few weeks ago, I used to be so down, I had fear about the future, and I was just extremely worried about everything in my life. This was mainly because I was just extremely lost. I didn't know my purpose, I could not see any talents I have, and I was not doing something with myself that I could look back to. I was very empty inside, so I would speak to guys to fill the void inside and escape my loneliness. Back in October 2017, I had enough and reached the bottom rock. I turned away from social media, and just turned my face towards God and cried out to him. I decided rebuild a relationship with him and focus on myself. I wanted to seek his face so he can fill the void I had inside; also, I wanted him to show me my purpose and talents I could use, because I was sick and tired seing that so many people are using their talents for a purpose, they have goals to reach next year and I am just not doing anything purposeful with myself, except from going school.

    That was the best decision I made this year tbh. To seek God and build a relationship with him. Right now, I am extremely joyful inside, I have no worries about the future, the fear I used to have is completely gone. God is teaching me so many things now and I can hear the holy spirit speaking to me everyday. I cant express how happy I am. God has opened a door for me which I am GREATLY grateful for and he is showing me my purpose. Now, I dont stress when I look at other peoples life and success, I dont envy their relationships, bodies, possession or success because the peace of God lives is deeply rooted inside of me now and I believe that God will provide everything I need and he has GREAT plans for my life. I have so much to say but thats just a glance of my experience within a few weeks.

    so, I found contentment within myself when I decided to first focus on my relationship with God daily, and focus on improving myself as a person ; work on my inner beauty and prayers.

  • It has been really difficult for me to be content in this current season in my life, which is teaching me sooooo much about contentment because I am at a place in life where I have so many of the things that I've wanted! I've finally graduated from college, and after college, it took me 6 months to find my first job, but I got the job! And it's a job doing something that I absolutely love, a job that fulfills the purpose that God has called over my life. I even got my first car at the age of 24, and life is good. (This may not seem like a lot to some people, but it's everything to me)And for a while, I was really happy because I finally had all of the things, but then I started to look around and see what other people were doing around me, and starting feeling like what I had wasn't enough…even though I had everything that my heart had ached for! So I realized how much value I had put into my job and my car, and I saw how much my happiness was contingent on those things. And that even though I had what I wanted, I still wanted more.

    So I haven't exactly figured how to "remain" content in my season because I struggle with discontentment every day. But I pray to God constantly asking him to make me content with my portion, and to stop me from comparing myself to others around me. Right now I am way more aware of how discontent can affect me, and I'm grateful for that.

  • Thank you for sharing! I find contentment in my season by prayer. Being honest with God and to myself about where I want to be, what I'm doing to get there, and also that I need his strength and encouragement. I remember that for the places I want to go, there must be differences in where I am at the moment. I want to be able to look back one day and say "look how far God has brought me". I find strength in knowing that you have to start somewhere, there has to be a process..some lessons.

  • Hi @LeahsEssence, I love inspirational videos as well as fashion, and makeup. I have shared some of my testimonies as well as fashion so I would love it you would check it out and subscribe to Kim's Korner. I have already subscribed to your channel because your channel has a lot of substance and revelation for me and many others.

  • I love your beautiful honest and sincere personality. I post similar videos for Christian girls. But I just love your videos! thank you so much for sharing.

  • Such an encouraging video! I am in the exact situation you were describing about looking for a job. Thanks so much Leah! πŸ˜€

  • This was right on time! Every question that u mentioned are the exact same questions I have been asking myself. You exude so much wisdom and this video really opened my eyes even more to just allow God to take the reins and let Him work in His timing. You have a beautiful spirit and I enjoy your vids! Looking forward for more!

  • Hi Leah. I understand you no longer live in Chicago but I'm visiting soon and would love to attend a service at the church where you'd grown in your relationship with God. I'm sort of new to the channel and your confidence in Him is inspiring and encouraging to my own relationship. Thank you for your obedience in your videos.

  • Hi! My name is Olivia and im 25 years old. I've been watching your video's on and off for about a month now and I just want to say thank you for your videos. It really seems like every time I tune you are discussing an area I am struggling with. So again thank for being a light for those of us who are walking and those of us wanting to walk this walk of faith. Stay blessed!

  • This was right on time. I came to YouTube to look up videos for this specific reason contentment & especially with the job situation I'm there right now. Wanting to go off on EVERYBODY, but instead I'm showing them the love of Christ. & im staying RIGHT HERE until God says move no matter what. I know I'm here to be taught something for a season. & it gets tough, so thank you!!! you came right up, in my "recent YouTube uploads". & you couldn't have came any sooner.

  • Thank You God for your servant daughter sharing this message. In this season of persecution I am content by reminding myself God is greater than my circumstance, He supplies all my needs, God has not forgotten about me His timing is just different than mankind. I have Joy from the Lord not due to events in life nor material things. I realized my hope is not in my bank account nor a biweekly paycheck but my hope is anchored in the Lord.

  • I stay content in this season by being thankful on a daily basis for the things that I have.Β  I have found that either God will give me the desires of my heart, or He will change in my heart what I should desire!Β  Thank you for sharing this Leah!

  • I really needed to hear this today. I am a college student. And unfortunately I am constantly wondering if I am doing the right thing, making the right decisions, taking the right steps. I love God and I trust him. I feel like its me holding myself back. I get stuck because instead of making any decisions I just stay where I am because I am so scared of not making the right decision. I am working towards fully trusting in God and being confident that He is leading me to where He wants me to go. At the end of the day God knows what is best for me πŸ™‚ I just gotta get out of my own way.

  • "I've been doing my best to remain content in my season because God's plans are greater than mine! I put on positive vibes everyday as much as I can by reading the bible, doing daily posts on my two groups for God, viewing a lot of Inspiring sermons, music videos and interviews!" This video is amazingly helpful and God will give you the Grace to continue sharing with others! Thanks πŸ™‚ "A link to my group" https://plus.google.com/communities/100910038926282374769?sqinv=dXNLakZwWkppNGEyUHR0VHpFWTFvb2JUY0wta1B3

  • What a GREAT reminder! God bless youπŸ’ž I remain content as I stand on HIS word that will not return voidπŸ’―

    Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise
    Hebrews 10:24
