Happy Thoughts (Are the Result of Godly Contentment)

image

Contentment is a good thing.

A very good thing.

It’s also elusive.

Contentment with our circumstances (you know, that inner, glad, happy, at-peace, state of mind) can only come when we let go of control…happily…and give the reigns of our life to Him who controls it anyway.

As Max Lucado writes…

When we surrender to God the cumbersome sack of discontent, we don’t give up something; we gain something. God replaces it with a lightweight, tailor-made, sorrow-resistant attache’ of gratitude.

What will you gain with contentment?

You may gain your marriage.
You may gain precious hours with your children.
You may gain joy.

It’s true.

Godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Timothy 6:6
