Contentment

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Contentment is one of those qualities I struggle to achieve. The world tells us we need and should strive for more everyday. God simply asks us to be content with where we are and what we have, and in that moment is where we will find His blessings. I was reading one of my favorite devotion sites, Proverbs31.org, and in their devotion they described contentment perfectly. "When I stop striving to create a life for myself, I find the life God created for me." This truth is so simple, basic, and even a bit obvious, but I forget it so easily. Thank you Lord for this reminder today.


"You're blessed when you're content with just who you are—no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought." Matthew 5:5 (MSG)
