I’m super excited to be speaking to a local MOPS group today about contentment.
That’s a hard one isn’t it. Being content with what we have.
I love this quote by Priscilla Shirer…
“Contentment is the equilibrium between the enjoyment of life now and the anticipation of what is to come. Contentment serves as a guard against desires gone wild…. It is the faith-filled belief that what God has bestowed now is worthy of gratitude and appreciation, not merely because it is enough but because it is good…. By choosing contentment, you’re not getting rid of your desires; you’re just demanding that they assume an appropriate, humble position in your life.”
I won’t rehash my whole message because it’s worth a few blog posts but I’ll leave you with a preview. I wanted the ladies to have a little reminder so I made these cute little cards with my “sticky point”.
