I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. -PHILIPPIANS 4:11-13 (NIV) I can’t begin to describe how fortunate and blessed I am. I have an amazing family, I’m a part of an incredible church, I love my job—I could go on. God has been so good to me. But why is it that even the smallest trials can lead to worry, anxiety, and discontentment? The Spirit has been leading me through a season of learning to be “content whatever the circumstances” as Paul writes in Philippians 4. As I study this Scripture, I’m forced to wonder: do I truly believe what Paul believed, that “we can do all things through Him who gives us strength?” I believe being content and being grateful go hand in hand. When I lack contentment, the good things of God are eclipsed. In order to cultivate a heart of gratitude, we must learn to be content in Christ alone. Every day, I try to practice this discipline that Paul seems to have mastered. Life is too short and too precious not to trust Jesus to be our strength in all things and Lord of our life.

PRAYER

Allow these lyrics to be your prayer: Father, I'm sorry when I've just gone through the motions. I'm sorry when I just sang another song. I'm sorry when I've come with my agenda. I'm sorry when I forgot that You're enough. Take me back to where we started, I open up my heart to You. I just want you, nothing else. -Nothing Else by Cody Carnes
