Content With Life

Steven Laman

READ : Philippians 4:10-20

Sometimes I am not at all content with life. If only I didn’t have a disability, life would be much better. If I were able to walk, talk, drive a car, sign my name, and get a job, then, I think, life would be good.

When I don’t feel very content with life, I find it helps to go to God’s Word for comfort. In 2 Corinthians 12:9, God says that His grace is sufficient for me. Do you know what? It is!

I find that God’s promises help me to overcome my discontentment with life. Philippians 1:6 promises, “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” In Isaiah 41:10, God tells us, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

How about you? Do you ever get discontented with life? If you do, try what I do look up several of God’s promises. Then we can see that God is in control. When we believe His promises, He will help us to be content, whatever our circumstances.


Father, help us find contentment with life. Help us to trust Your promises. In Your Son’s name. Amen.
