I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.
– Philippians 4:11b-12
It is so easy find myself discontented, even dissatisfied. I compare my lifestyle to others, seeing what they have that I don’t, and my heart becomes envious. I feel like I am lacking something I need and I start adding to my wish lists. I want to learn to be content right where I am. Help me to change from living with a mindset of scarcity to one of abundance, believing you are providing more than enough for me. Throughout my day today, remind me all you have provided to meet my needs, both big and small, so that I might turn to you with a grateful heart. In gratefulness I will find true contentment, knowing you are a good and generous God.
CALL TO ACTION:
Discontentment is infectious in a culture of comparison, and we often find ourselves asking questions like, “Am I enough? Do I have enough? Am I good enough?” Today, watch the message “Contentment in a World of Discontent,” and listen to the song “Grateful” to help you refocus and change your perspective from constantly comparing to consistently content.
