When I was fifty years old, I received a devotional book on “To Be Content”.
One of the articles made me aware anew that every person can lives in one of two tents. They are contentment and discontentment.
To live in true contentment one must choose to find, accept and personally know Jesus Christ as Lord.
Listen to Paul’s words in Philippians 4:11 in the King James Version “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content”. What a wonderful secret for each of us to strive to attain.
If you have never had the God-shaped vacuum of your life filled, listen for the Holy Spirit’s knocking at your heart’s door and pleading entrance into your heart and life. He offers peace, forgiveness, mercy and grace as accompaniments to contentment.
