Contentment. The seemingly ever elusive thing that everyone desires. As humans we search for it in every place imaginable, filling their lives with physical things and money. And yet they never find the peace and joy that they so desire. It is something that when you really think about it that is right before our very eyes. The Word of God and everything He has given us and taught us is where true contentment lies.
What is the definition of contentment? The dictionary definition of contentment is "Ease of Mind." What is contentment? The Sunday School answer would be "Why becoming happy where God has you of course." But when you begin to dig deeper there is so much more to it. I'm not saying I have it all figured out but I have discovered some things. Contentment is resting in the power of God. What can God do? Everything and anything. Is there anything God cannot do? No. Can anything happen without God knowing or ordaining it? No. What about when evil happens? Not even evil can happen without God ordaining it. Evil was created by God and is simply the absence of God and His glory. So are we still willing to be content and trusting in God's all knowing and infinite power even when things are going bad or even good?
These are just some things that I have been thinking over the past couple weeks and if you have any other insights please feel free to post and we can dig deeper into this. :)
