Stumbling into Grace Journal Entry 13 -Putting Down the Pen

…How Jesus Helps Us Become More Content…

If you’ve put your faith in Jesus Christ, you can enjoy deep contentment. We can bask and revel in the reality that we have been completely accepted and are totally adored by the Son of God. –Lisa Harper  (Thank You, Jesus!!)

So, today I’ve been thinking about putting down my pen and becoming more content with You as the author of my life, Jesus, and… May I be able to say what Paul does in Philippians 4:11-13

…I have learned how to be content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am. I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want. I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

AMEN!

How is God teaching you contentment?
