Being Content No Matter
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 everything through him who gives me strength.
Being content in almost anything we do is very hard, or even what we have. We can have little or nothing, or a whole lot, would we still be content?
Paul was content no matter what, he has been going from place to place spreading God's word but even in the midst of persecution, going hungry, no shelter, and more he stays content in the Lord. Are we content? I to have had little or nothing, and have had plenty. I panicked the first time, was worried the second, but then I start realizing that no matter what we have in life, nothing can compare to having Jesus, He says all things shall pass, I try to remember that, even trials shall pass away they won't last forever.
Keep looking at what you do have, praise God for it and go about each day praying and praising.
