Cultivating Contentment

She looks well to how things go in her household, and the bread of idleness (gossip, discontent, and self-pity) she will not eat. 
{Proverbs 31:27} AMP


Learning to cultivate contentment in the midst of storms, trials, opposition, setbacks and Learning to be content with where I'm at. Trusting GOD with all my heart because HE is faithful. 
"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God". {Romans 8:28}
♦ I refuse to focus on my circumstances
♦ I refuse to magnify Issues that cause stress in my life
♦ I refuse to indulge in self-pity
♦ I refuse to be discontent 
♦ I refuse to believe lies (circulating in my head)

 for the LORD says; "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 
{2 Corinthians 2:9}

♦ I will focus on all the GOOD, what GOD is doing in my life and the life of others.
 ♦ I will rest my anxious thoughts and heart and leave it all in GOD'S hands.
♦ I will Lift up my voice (keep in prayer). I will keep my eyes, my thoughts, focused on CHRIST and HIS    love for me.
♦ I will Rejoice and Praise the LORD for who HE is. HE judges fairly and my case is in HIS hands. I will be persistent with my prayers and pleads.
♦ I will believe every word in the BIBLE. There, I will gather my information and rest in my DADDY'S Arms, my Father GOD.

LORD FATHER GOD,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Help me to rest in YOUR Presence, in YOUR Word and know with all my heart YOU are here with me guiding the way. For YOU Promised LORD to never leave me nor forsake me. May I be a content woman in YOU. Who is content in YOUR LOVE and finds shelter and comfort in the Shadow of YOUR wings. May I, *not* give into self-pity O LORD but STAND Firm, Secure and STRONG in YOU. YOU are my Strength, my Hope of Glory. My full JOY and Contentment is found in YOU.
