The Secret to Contentment
Take the attention off of ourselves and shine it on others.

Taking attention off of ourselves and shining it on others is possible when we trust God. Leading people to the joy of life in Christ and helping them fulfill their Godly purpose brings contentment in Christ.

The various attributes of contentment are as follows:

Satisfaction.
Lack of envy.
Humility.
Discipline.
Abhorrence of greed and corruption.
Thankful for what You have not what you do not.

 1 Timothy 6:6-12 But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Father as I Pray daily for You to Strengthen me Spiritually Mentally Emotionally Physically and to Bless me with each as well Financially Providing my/our every need as only You can do, for You are The Promise Keeper I see Your Goodness right here right now within me, Thank You Father My Heart Trust You in Jesus name Amen

Job 33:26
He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

Carolyn: my sister in Christ yes I did and I replied to your post yesterday on Win The Day to inspire you and Thank You you as well for Your Prayers for me. My Dearest Friend we truly help each other. This is what we are to be doing serving one another through Jesus Christ.

I do not always get notifications but I go back always to yours to check and read. Through every emotional struggle we go through we look up knowing in Faith and Hope that Jesus brings us through stronger than before. Learning through that struggling that our every need is Jesus.

I Pray this reply finds you in higher spirits knowing that we live in the moment not past or future in the moment, knowing Jesus is our first, last Hope because all He's ever been is Good to us. All He will ever be as we look the storm in the eye is our every Hope!

May God Bless You and Keep You Always in His Amazing Grace, Love and Blessings in Jesus Christ name Amen 🕊️🙏🤗😇

Psalms 107:8-9 KJV
Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness.
