Welcome back to Marriage Monday! I'm so glad you've joined me as we focus on strengthening and promoting godly marriages, both in our nation and in our own backyards!
Since the beginning of the year we've been looking at various characteristics of the godly wife. Last week we focused on the joyful wife, and today I want to talk about the content wife.
Not that I am implying that I was in any personal want, for I have learned how to be content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am. I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want. I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. (Amplified version)
"A quiet heart is content with what God gives. It is enough. All is grace." ~ Elisabeth Elliot
Who wants to join me in a Contentment Challenge? We will purpose to do less comparing, competing, and complaining and to do more trusting, thanking, and rejoicing! Who's with me?
