Being discontent becomes a way of life and a mindset that will sabotage your joy and peace at every turn. It drains your energy and distorts your vision.
It is NOT God’s will for your life.
What is the secret to breaking the cycle and being content no matter what is happening in your life?
Paul says he has learned the secret of being content.
Easy to say and difficult to live.
But NOT impossible to obtain.
YOU CAN do it.
“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
(Philippians 4:12, 13 NIV)
There it is in black and white.
Because of Christ in you, you can.
You can be content with:
where you are,
what you are doing,
with your body,
with your age,
with your job,
financially strapped or prosperous,
physically healthy or not,
In conflict or in peace.
YOU CAN do all this thru Christ who STRENGTHENS you.
I know you feel overwhelmed with it.
By yourself, you can’t manufacture contentment. It is a miracle and you need a miracle. You think you need a miracle so you can get something you want. The bigger miracle is to be content with what you already have and trusting God to give you what you need.
With Christ pouring his strength in you, YOU CAN.
