Paul says he has "learned the secret of being content". So how do we also learn to be content, when, like the Israelites in the wilderness, we are often inclined to grumble?
Grumbling : to complain quietly; to mutter in discontent
"I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 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 4:11-13
“Joy is always a function of gratitude – and gratitude is always a function of perspective. If we are going to change our lives, what we’re going to have to change is the way we see.” Ann Voskamp
What's the recipe for contentment? Change our perspective, Look for the good and give thanks.
It was great to chat, pray, eat, worship and spend time together on Saturday morning. Thanks to all the women who came to share the Word and Worship event. Thanks to all those who volunteered and served us so very well.
So, four days in, How are you getting on with searching for the good each day and giving thanks?
