To be content is to be satisfied with what one is or has; not wanting more or anything else.
Can you say for sure that you’re there? Can anyone? Have you reached true and complete contentment? I would love to say with Paul, “for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances” Philippians 4:11. The truth is that I am fully content in many areas of my life. But I haven’t reached 100% full contentment in every area. I am working on it, and I will probably still be working on it until the day I die. I would guess that’s the case for most people. Let’s lift each other up in prayer and not cast judgment on our neighbor. I’ll start the ball rolling – here are the areas where you can pray for me:
- I wish I was a full time housewife again and struggle with working full time.
- I wish the wait for Tucker wasn’t so long.
- I wish I had more time to invest in my middle/high school girls at church.
- I wish I had a dog.
Now it’s your turn – how can I pray for you?
