Contentment is viewed these days as a bad thing.  We are forever trying to get a better place, a higher position, more pay.  Can you learn to climb and be free of stress?  Can you face where you are and accept it?  There is a contentment which says, “I am okay where I am until God changes my circumstances.”  Contentment does not come easy.  It is learned.  Look inside contentment, and you will see gratitude, patience, and trust.

“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.  I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:11b-13 (NIV)
