Others may do a greater work,
But you have your part to do;
And no one in all God's heritage
Can do it so well as you.
Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, it is the realization of how much God has already given you. They who are God's without reserve, are in every state content; for they will only what He wills, and desire to do for Him whatever He desires them to do; they strip themselves of everything, and in this nakedness find all things restored an hundredfold.
I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content (Philippians 4:11). Streams in the Desert by L. B. Cowman
