Complacency

Complacency

You know how when you're reading your Bible, and a word just jumps out at you. My word was "complacency".  "the complacency of fools will destroy them" (Proverbs 1) In my struggle to live a health-filled life, I was getting so discouraged at my day after day failure.  I kept trying to figure out why I couldn't make this lifestyle change. Then, this word "shouts' out at me. I looked it up for the exact meaning - "self-satisfaction, unawareness of dangers". There was my reason. I was walking in complacency in just about every area of my life. Indulging in my wants and not taking seriously the dangers of not taking care of myself, spiritually and physically. The opposite of complacency is "humbleness, humility, modesty. Interesting, It made sense to me. I was living a life of "self-satisfaction". Complacent about the dangers of not taking care of myself, body, soul and spirit. 

Someone said, "Always first draw fresh breaths

after outbursts of vanity and complacency". 

Time to humbly take a deep fresh breath and start over.

The Cattle on a Thousand Hills

Pasocowshill

"For every beast of the forest is Mine,
The cattle on a thousand hills."
Psalm 50

Music and Lyrics by John W. Peterson


He Owns the Cattle

C He owns the cattle on a thousand hills; G The wealth in every mine. G7 He owns the rivers and the rocks and the rills; C The sun and stars that shine. F Wonderful riches more than tongue can tell; D G He is my Father, so they’re mine as well. C He owns the cattle on a thousand hills; F G C I know He will care for me.
