JANUARY 29 DEVOTION

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I HAVE LEARNED TO BE CONTENT WITH WHATEVER i HAVE. i KNOW WHAT IT IS TO HAVE LITTLE, AND i KNOW WHAT IT IS TO HAVE PLENTY. IN ANY AND ALL CIRCUMSTANCES I HAVE LEARNED THE SECRET OF BEING WELL-FED AND OF GOING HUNGRY, OF HAVING PLENTY AND OF BEING IN NEED. PHILIPPIANS 4:11-12

WHEN PEACE LIKE A RIVER ATTENDETH MY WAY,
WHEN SORROWS LIKE SEAS BILLOWS ROLL,
WHATEVER MY LOT, THOU HAS TAUGHT ME TO SAY,
"IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL."
HORATIO G.SPAFFORD, "IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL."

CONTENTMENT GROWS UP FROM A GRATEFUL HEART. WE MAY SOMETIMES
THINK TO OURSELVES, I'D BE HAPPY, IF ONLY....HOWEVER, SOME OF
THE MOST DISCONTENT PEOPLE ARE THOSE WHO SEEM TO HAVE IT ALL.
CONTENTMENT BEGINS, NOT IN HAVING THAT ONE MORE THING THAT
ELUDES OUR GRASP, BUT IN BECOMING DEEPLY THANKFUL FOR THE
THINGS THAT ARE ALREADY WITHIN OUR GRASP.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY
JOAN

    Oprah once said on her show, that if one is not content with what they have, no matter how much more wealth we gain, we will never be content with it. We will always want more. Phil 4:11-12 fits in with her teaching.

    Loved your devotion for Jan. 29th....and the song as well..If we can be content in whatever circumstances we may find ourselves, then we are truly in the center of God's wil for us.....

    Never a secret that when we are content with our lot in life in all things, we then glorify God and cause Him to be recognized by others.
