I have recently had a verse on my mind. It is the verse in Philippians that speaks about contentment. The verse is Philippians 4:11 and says, "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am therewith to be content." I have been having a struggle of late with being content. I am also focusing too much on the future and not enough in the present. So I have thought of that verse a lot lately. I think of Paul and it is hard not to wonder, how could he be content with his lot in life? It is quite a verse to focus on. When I think of the persecuted church, I think that I would struggle with contentment if I was in their place. Another verse I found about contentment is 1Timothee 6:6, " But godliness with contentment is great gain." I think I am going to put those verses up on the wall.
(a side note...I have been having trouble with comments left on my blog...some cannot leave comments and sometimes I post a comment that has been left and then it doesn't show. I hope that it will be fixed soon. Thanks for stopping by. )
