Being Content


“Contentment is not saying you are comfortable. Nor is it saying that you are at a place of final destination. Contentment is being okay with the ‘here’ and the ‘now’. Having a FAITH expectation of the things to come. Contentment is the balance in knowing our trust is in God alone and in due time He will meet our needs, our desires. Contentment is not a place to hang your hat and take up residence.” ~ Jennifer Goodson Copyright © 2012.  All Rights Reserved.

As Paul says, contentment is a place of, “. . . being satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted in whatever state I am in.”
Endurance the key ~ Contentment the balancing anchor
“When we allow our perspective of our present circumstances transform from what we thought upon it – to how God sees it, we can find His enduring strength to help us through this race we call life. “ ~ jmgoodson
