Sometimes we think security and contentment are found in our career titles, our kind of car or the brand name of our clothes. When wanting more we place undue pressure on ourselves in an attempt to get what God hasn’t provided. Naturally anxiety is the result when we focus on things other than God and His will for our lives. But when we choose to thank God for what He has given us, regardless of our feelings toward them we can experience contentment.
Questions for further thought:
1. Does my heart always long for more then what God has provided?
2. If so, why, and what do I need to do to find contentment?
Challenge: Make a list of all God has provided already in your life.
