Learn to Be Content— a Secret to Peace of Mind

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: Philippians 4:11 NKJV

Many of us go through life wishing we had someone else’s life. Maybe you never say that aloud, but you see people with more of what you want and wish you had their lifestyle, their ministry, their business or home. People who have more are not always content. People who have less are not discontent.

Sometimes when God blesses people, they don’t’ know what to do with it because they’ve bee so negative in their mind.

Love the life God has given you. You can do all things through Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit giving you a positive life.[1]

Thank God for the life you have and the family He has placed you within. Thank Him for the tough times as well as the good. Ask Him to help you stay centered on the big picture. With contentment comes peace of mind.

[1] Philippians 4:13
