My sister, you will live a content life.

“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” Hebrews 13:5

“But godliness with contentment is great gain.” 1 Timothy 6:6

“Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:11-13

My sister, the enemy will always tell us that happiness is somewhere other than where we are right now. God doesn’t mind us wanting more; He just wants us to be happy with what we have while we pursue better. It makes no sense at all to be grumpy while we wait on our man of God, grumpy while we wait to have children, grumpy while we wait for a vacation, or grumpy while we wait to get a more spacious house. God doesn’t respond to our grumpiness. He responds to our faith, and a key indicator that we are in faith is our resting and trusting in Him.

Come on, my sister, let’s choose to be content. Let’s choose to appreciate and be satisfied with what we have while God blesses us. Let’s enjoy where we are while we’re on our way to where He’s destined us to be. Contentment isn’t complacency. It is no longer allowing our circumstances to have control over our happiness.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking directly to my heart. Help me learn how to be content. You have blessed me over the years, and you are still pouring your love and goodness on my life today. Whatever I need or want, you already know about it. Help me rest in you and be happy and at peace. Set me free by your love to live a content life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Praise God! Hallelujah! Amen!
    Thank you Lord, for teaching me to be content in whatever state I’m in. God is good!

  2. Amen Sister! For if as we have conduct without covetousness, wanting what someone else have and not happy with what The Lord have given us jealousy and envy steps in. I grew up poor in material things, but didn’t never have a problem with it because I knew I had everything I needed. As I got older and got married, had a child and got divorced. The enemy have been trying to take my contentment. So I had been struggling bad, that’s why I fought the will of God and His plans for my life and how He wanted to do it in my life. I wanted to write the ending instead of trusting and having faith knowing who He is and He wants the best for me. I have humbled myself knowing if I want to be like Jesus, He served. And because I’m His daughter, I am to serve as well with being a good steward over everything He has given to me. I’m truly blessed because of the “FOUNDATION IN HIM” I was given as I grew up so whatever comes to beat upon my house it will still stand because of the “FOUNDATION!” For a moment I was shaken by who did what they did and said to me untruths, I had to really have a relationship with The Father and know what He said about me and what He said to me in His “Love Letter” to me by His Word. I couldn’t keep on going on bits and pieces, but the truth of what Jesus did for me on Calvary and Him being my Better Hope and New Testament, Atonement. “The Unblemished Sacrifice!!!” So I’m getting everything back what the enemy was trying to steal, kill, and destroy!!!🙌🙌🙌
    He knows what I have need of and all I have to do is ask Him as I walk with Him. I know He will not withhold any good thing from me as I walk upright with Him, becoming the Kingdom Woman He desires me to be as I do as well.

    Sister Kesha, yes, He is still pouring out His love and goodness on our lives. Thank you always.💕💐💜💕💐💜

  3. In this season I sometimes find myself not being content.
    Sometimes I am not satisfied with my body, I feel fat.

    I am not content at work. The environment is toxic, I feel useless, and not enough income.

    With family I do not feel content everyone is grown up and lost in this world. Relationships are hard to come by and sometimes I just feel alone.

    When I think about it I must give it all to God he would not have brought me this far to let me down. I must not be of this world because social media and broken people are not good for me. I must let go of my old ways and be content with who God has transformed into. I am praying for patience and contentment in this season. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen

    1. I pray that you find happiness in new things and your situations improve such as finding a new better job. Amen ❤️

  4. Thank you Lord for helping look up & not around me. Thank you for working on and in me! Thank you for putting up with all my wanderings and being faithful in midst of all this… You will receive the glory & I give it You now!
    I was offered a promotion today, a lateral move, but new title & new responsibilities …so much to learn but I know it’s from You God! I praise You!
