“I have experienced times of need and times of abundance. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of contentment, whether I go satisfied or hungry, have plenty or nothing.” – Philippians 4:12 (NET Bible)
Are you aware that the search for happiness and fulfillment can consume our lives? It seems that we are always looking for something or someone to make us happy or bring us satisfaction.
Everyday we’re searching, working, and even shopping for happiness. The problem is that most people are looking for happiness in all the wrong people, the wrong places, and the wrong things.
There is power in contentment! Simply put, contentment is learning to rest in Christ. It’s embracing who you are, where you are, and what you have without buying into the lies of society that say you are not enough and you do not have enough.
Contentment does not depict having everything you want, but being grateful for the things you do have and trusting God for the things you need. This is a powerful attitude that results in true peace, joy, and fulfillment!
