Romans 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

So, everyone keeps asking me what is the most memorable/important/valuable lesson that I have learned this year in school. Well, I have learned so much it could have had the potential to turn into a very long process of introspection, but God has been hammering this one lesson into my life all year. So my answer to the question is: Contentment! Now it is still a work in process, I think it is something I will always struggle with, but God has taught me a lot in this area this year. I did my devotional for speech class on contentment and it was such a wonderful time of learning for me. It was a wonderful study and God taught me so much thru that assignment. My room at school is now covered with quotes on contentment. My favorite is:
"Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of what you already have." Unknown Author
It is a daily struggle for me, but I have learned that it's a decision that I have to make daily. All I have to remember is that I am "complete in HIM!" Colossians 2:10
