I encourage you to listen to Paul’s words carefully in his last paragraphs to Timothy. They are full of encouragement. Charged with a desire to go on. Yet they also show Paul knows his destiny and he accepts it willingly as a faithful servant. He is not discouraged. He is not complaining. He doesn’t sorrow. In fact, you’ll recall in other letters, he questions which is better to remain or to die and be with God? He was torn between the two. Paul found contentment in whatever circumstance he found himself because God was always with him.
God will always be with you, too. Find contentment in Him and you will have real joy in living each moment whatever your circumstance.
