Sept.5/18 – Contentment isn’t getting what we want but being satisfied with what we have.

contentmentcontentmentSometimes I find this difficult with all the social bombardment of advertisements. Telling us what we need and what we should have to be complete and happy. It’s a temporary best thing till the next best thing. It’s a choice of the heart. Be content.

“Not that i speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content.”                                                                 Philippians 4:11

Peace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have been lead to hold a number of differnt occupations over my working years. Surprisingly, most of which I could have never forcast for myself. They include- Nurse, wife, mother, florist, nana, writer, custodian, and now blogger. With these vocations have come many life experiences. I love catchy words and phrases.They are easy to remember and when shared can be a source of encouragement and hope. The meanings are not new their counterparts can be found in the reliable book of life, the Bible. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
