Are You

Do you ever look at other people’s lives and wonder, “Why can’t I have those blessings, that career, those opportunities, that peace, that marriage, and that happiness?” Well, you’re not alone.

In Philippians 4:12-13, apostle Paul stated, “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. Paul—one of the greatest apostles of all-time—had to learn how to find genuine satisfaction with his life’s journey.

Contentment isn’t something we stumble upon. It’s something that we deliberately choose. Each day, we must decide how we perceive our challenges, and we must choose to love the life that we’ve been given. Though sometimes hard to believe, your blessings are enough—and your challenges have a divine purpose.

Apostle Paul taught that we must invite contentment into our lives by thinking about what is pure, just, noble, lovely, and of good report (Philippians 4:8). If you think that your glass is half empty—instead of half full—decide to fill it with a renewed appreciation for your strengths and unique destiny. Today, deliberately choose contentment. Find satisfaction in the life that you’ve been given. c



Maximize the challenges in your life, and shape them into something good. Everything happens for a reason. This “tell it like it is” resource will help you grow and become better, not bitter.
