Thankful

      In life we are always wanting something...desiring something. We keep telling ourselves, "if I just have this...then I'll be satisfied." A quote I found I thought was pretty awesome:
"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you  now have was once among the things you only hoped for."
 Philippians 4:11-13, "I am not saying this because I am in need, for 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." 

     Why can't we just be content with what God has given us? Thankful for what we already have?

  1. Good question. And one that deserves some careful thinking I would say!

    Thanks for sharing Clari.
