Thankfulness = Contentment

Adapted from the resource The Power of Being Thankful - by Joyce Meyer

Being content and being grateful go hand-in-hand. Many people who deal with discontentment have never developed the habit of being appreciative and thankful for the daily blessings in their lives. Think about this: If you were in the hospital right now, you would be content with something as simple as sitting in your own house in your favorite chair, but when you were at home in your chair, you may not have been content then either. We always think we will be content when . . . but why not choose to be content right now?

Even if you don’t have what you want or need right now, I want to encourage you to keep a positive attitude and hold on to hope. Thank God for what He’s given you, refuse to focus on what you don’t have, love others, and stay hopeful concerning every area of your life. As you do, you’ll begin to experience more and more peace, joy, and contentment than you ever thought you could have.

Prayer Starter: God, thank You for the blessings You’ve given me today. Please help me to stay thankful and content, and not to take any of them for granted. Even while I’m waiting on You for the things I’m praying for, I choose to be grateful for today’s blessings and to believe that You’re working on what I need. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
