Secret Of Contentment

 
 

Secret Of Contentment
By Tom D Blakely
~

It seems the more we get
the more we want
No matter what we have
we’re not content.
We start our lives with nothing
and work until we get
the things we thought we wanted…
But still we’re not content!

Contentment is not found
within ourselves
Or things we have or do
but somewhere else.
At first perhaps, we doubt it
but God’s Word is the truth
If only we would listen…
Contentment we can have!

Contentment comes when we
have peace with God
The way is by the cross
and Jesus’ blood.
We first must know the Saviour
and have our sins forgiven…
Contentment comes through Jesus
We live and grow in Him!

“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.
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.”
[Philippians 4:12]
