Contentment really gets a bad rep in our world today.
It’s thought to be a state of laziness and apathy.
I know of a situation one time when I was looking for a job and I got it, I was able to rent a house and to have food on my table.
I met the man of my dreams and got hitched (and I love it).
Then I realized I need a salary raise and once I couldn’t get it I went into a state depression.
But then, why did I always want more?
Some may call it ambition; I refuse to believe it was, as I was trying to fill a void, trying to get satisfaction off things.
That wasn’t going to work.
Ooh, and don’t get me going on the shopping sprees I went on when I got depressed.
What I didn’t know is that I wasn’t making the most of what already God had put in my hands, until this year I let go of it all, went back to the drawing board (to the feet of God) and got a hold of what really matters, purpose!
Where is your treasure?
I had to realize that I could own stuff, have it all going without allowing all this things to weigh me down, because when they did, I would want something new that would give me a different feeling/experience. This way I wouldn’t stop to be grateful and grow into a better person because I was always in a constant state of “wanting more.”
How to Remain Content:
For being alive, if you are still breathing God isn’t done with you yet.
So trust that he has a bigger plan, a better purpose for your life that in due time he will unveil it.
As you wait, work with what he has given you.
If you truly believe his got you, you will rest, you will be content.
Learn from your present circumstances before wanting a change or more stuff.
Yourself with everyone else, you are unique and loved by God as you are.
Your journey is different, learn to appreciate it and enjoy each moment of it.
Learn to live in the moment of every experience and you will be grateful for every opportunity God has brought your way!
