40 days of truth: day 9

i can be content

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:11-13

I don’t need more.

I don’t have to have the latest and the most and what everyone else has.

I can be content with what He gives me.

I can ignore the shiny things and the faster things and the things that make me feel like I belong at the table with the cool kids.

I can be content at my own table.

But there is a secret to that contentment.

His name is Jesus.

The better thing, always.

I can stand right here and survey my life with my honest eye and see that I have what more than I need. And I can admit that my flesh confuses wants with needs, and I let my flesh boss me around more than I make it die.

But I don’t have to do that.

I have the Spirit of God and I know what is true. So I’ll speak truth so that I will live truth.

I can be content.
