Secret Of Contentment

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. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:12-13 
 

“Mankind, by the perverse depravity of their nature, esteem that which they have most desired as of no value the moment it is possessed, and torment themselves with fruitless wishes for that which is beyond their reach.” -Francois Fenelon
    
Prayer for the day:

Heavenly Father, you are Jehovah Jireh, the greatest Provider of mankind. Very often we buy things we don’t need with the hard earned money we have to impress the people we don’t know. Help me to be content in You with what You have given me and not to focus on what my flesh wants or the world tells me I should have. Keep my heart from being anxious for what I don’t have and make me thankful for the numerous gifts that You have already given. Turn my heart toward Your unfailing love which gives joy and satisfaction. Help me to listen carefully to You, eat what is good, and delight myself in Your abundance. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
