It is so easy to fall victim to the “I want” bug. Why is that when we have so much?! But we do and we need to, for the sake of all yhat could be great in our lives, get over it. How?
The advice of many, many older people in my life…. “Count your blessings.” Sure, bad things happen. Sure society wants us discontent to sell us domething. Sure the enemu wants us discontent to destroy us. The thing is, we do not have to listen to a word any of them say.
If we listen to God, He is pretty clear. And He loves us and wants what is best for us out of love and not to sell us something or harm us. Count your bleasings and write them down. Add to them every day. Amazing how long of a list it is!😃❤
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Philippians 4:12 “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”
1 Timothy 6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
