As long as I can remember I’ve battled being content. Always find myself looking at the next thing, wanting more or bigger. I stumbled across this devotion a few years back and the message from it comes back to me when I need it most.
Philippians 4:11b : “for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”
"Paul learned that the fruit of contentment is developed when we are thankful for what God has provided whether we like it or not. That's because peace isn't the absence of pressure. It's the presence of God and our attitude toward His provision in the midst of our stress. By expressing gratitude, Paul experienced richness of being, not having."
