In the sixth of First Timothy we find the term “contentment”. Webster defines it as, “a state of happiness and satisfaction”.
Just a thought, is it at possible for a person to be content; at anything? Paul stated he had learned. So, is it possible all could learn? God states we should be happy for our present blessings as recorded in the sixteenth of Proverbs. In the second of Exodus, we see Moses finding soulful peace in the house of Jethro. What makes for contentment? Is it the realization we do have to have more? Or is it the comfort of not having to worry over anyone taking our abundance? Whichever direction it flows, we know we have peace with God brings us IF our trust holds in Him. When it is in ourselves, it is a struggle. Let’s allow God to handle our cares; He’s way better at it and has been doing it longer.
Have the day you are meant to have in Christ alone,
