Today’s scripture: Philippians 4:10-13
Paul understood “contentment” better than anyone. He knew he could be content
at all times, no matter the circumstances, because Christ would give him
It’s taken me a long time to learn contentment. Oh, I still get anxious or
frustrated at times. I often dream of that Victorian cottage on the banks of a
quiet river … although my quaint, cozy Tennessee home surrounded by woods is
pretty close! I sometimes wish I didn’t have health issues.
But, most of the time, I’m content with the life God has planned for me. And I
anticipate—without fear or worry—my future because I know my Lord God, my Abba,
will give me exactly what I need. My Savior will give me strength to accomplish
what I’m supposed to do. The Holy Spirit will guide, encourage, and convict me.
I highly recommend contentment. It makes living this very hectic, stressful,
uncertain life a little bit easier. Seriously.
