Discontentment started in a garden. It left the ideal woman longing for more. Restless ~ and believing the ‘if only’ lie.
If only I things were different …then I would be happy. If only my kids would behave, my house was bigger, my spouse was more thoughtful.
This weekend, I had the chance to speak at ACF about the ‘secrets of contentment.’ I encourage you to listen to the message here.
You’ll hear things like this:
- Discontentment is the enemy’s tool to wreck your peace and joy.
- Contentment is thanking God for what you have ~ and thanking God for what you don’t have.
- When the enemy assaults you, you need to be able speak God’s truth and push him back.
- Realize that all you are doing in your ‘busy’ life is ‘managing blessings.’
In prepping for this message, I read Thomas Watson’s book The Art of Divine Contentment. Download it for under a buck. I highly recommend it.
Take the time today to listen to the message and read Thomas Watson’s book.
Learn the secrets of contentment … and love your life again.
… shall I be discontented at that which is enacted by a decree, and ordered by a providence? Is this to be a child or a rebel? ~ Thomas Watson
