How to be Content
i've been doing a daily reading plan by Joyce Meyer, and one day last week i got a message that made me quit wining. she says that, "contentment is a decision to be happy with what you already have."
lesson 1: contentment is a choice
lesson 2: contentment is a choice in every circumstance
lesson 3: accept that God will give you what He wants you to have
lesson 4: after excepting lesson 3, trust Him to give you what you need
lesson 5: contentment is learned, so be patient
" I know how to live when I am poor, and I know how to live when I have plenty. I have learned the secret of being happy at any time in everything that happens, when I have enough to eat and when I go hungry, when I have more than I need and when I do not have enough."
-Philippians 4: 12
Joyce goes on to say that we are brought up in a world that lets us live discontent lives until we get to a severe breaking point, where life becomes too much. but if we could master the skill of contentment, think how much happier our lives would be! i know mine would be different!
wishing you a wonderful wordy wednesday!!
