Considering Contentment

G.K. Chesterton:

“There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.”

While visiting one of my favorite blogs, I found this wonderful quote that I believe really helps to understand how we should consider contentment. I desire a life of simplicity and I must allow myself to accept where I am; to be content and thankful with less. What a wonderful opportunity I have to live this, model for my children and watch the Lord do His part.

I'm very content at this moment, basking in the assurance that my needs are met according to His riches in Christ Jesus and its all because I choose to surrender and allow Him to be Lord in my life. Tomorrow I will be purging more of our things and we will give up 1 item for each new item we purchased today (today was Make it count ~ no tax day and many needed items were purchased). It will allow us to make room for what we have, use what we have and bless those who are in need.

Contentment ~ are you enjoying the peace of today?
