Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

                 Christian Contentment

"Why are you in despair, O my soul?

And why are you distrubed within me?

Hope in God,

for I shall again praise Him,

the help of my countenance."  

Psalm 43:5

 

 

 

Contentments is that gracious spirit

which submits to

and delights in God's wise

ordering and maintaining everything

in our life.

 

Contentment is not about rearranging

every situation to

our liking.

It is taking pleasure in how God works

everything  out for His own glory,

while at the same time trusting Him

with the circumstances,

whether we 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 alone.
