" . . . . for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." NIV
" . . . . for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content." KJV
How can we be content when there are so many obstacles and problems facing us day after day? We can be content because this world is temporary. We have a Hope, Jesus Christ, who will never leave us and who works all things for our good and His glory. We can remain content having faith in Him, the One who never changes.
Heavenly Father, it is so hard to not let the problems of this world get to us and make us lose our contentment. We humbly ask for your help in keeping our minds focused on You, the One who watches over us and will take care of us in all circumstances. In Jesus' name. Amen.
