Content = “A state of heart in which you would be at peace if God gave you nothing more than He already has.” Love Focused
That statement has really made me think. What I’ve concluded is that if you are not always focused on the “outcome” of what you are doing it’s way easier to be content. For example, we live in a home with 3 stories, basement, main floor and 2nd floor. The bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, the laundry and office are in the basement. My husband has two bad knees. Not a great combination. So for several years I’ve been praying about a ranch style home. We’ve even looked into a couple. Nothing has worked out. It used to really bother me, but today I realized it doesn’t bother me anymore. We have a home and the living expenses are reasonable. When we actually “need” something different I’m sure the Lord will provide it. He always has.
Now the challenge is to take that contentment to the rest of my life. This can be really challenging in relationships. What about you? Tell me about contentment in your life.
