"Why are you in despsair, O my soul?
And why are you distrubed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,
the help of my countenance and my God.
Contentment is that gracious spirit
which submits to
and delights in
God's wise ordering and maintaining everything in your life.
Contentment is not about
rearranging every situation to your liking.
It is taking pleasure in how God works everything out for His own glory,
while trusting Him with the circumstances,
whether you like them or not.
The contented person looks up to God in all things,
not downward at the means so as to say a certain person did this or that,
or certain situations were unreasonable.
Find your contentment in God today.
Thank Him that He is in control
and knows your needs.
Take His yoke upon you and learn of Him. He is gentle and humble.
Find your rest, your relief and contentment in Him.
