Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Contentment

Life is like a party.  You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didn’t come.  But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you.  And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.~ Unknown Author ~ 

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 

I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.~ Philippians 4:11-13 ~ 

Hello friends.  (smile)  It’s a beautiful thing to learn contentment, as we keep the faith.  The ebbs and flows, in life, will teach, change and grow us, one way or another.  Praise The Lord, by faith, for the victory.  

Sometimes, we want ________________ (fill in the blank) now.  Sometimes, God has something better.  

Contentment becomes powerful when we learn timing is everything as we walk through. 

Contentment becomes powerful when we learn ebbs and flows, in life, are temporary.

Contentment is blessings our enemies by choice.  It give God glory.

Contentment is loving ourself flaws and all.  Thank God for His mercy and grace.

Contentment promotes inner peace.  No angst.  

Contentment promotes trust that God can work all things out.  

Contentment promotes praise because we can.  

Blessings, my friends to be content until God changes our situation.  (smile)
