Contentment is learned. And like most things that do not come naturally and we have to learn, contentment is hard. Finding contentment in whatever circumstance is learned. And I would argue that it’s something that, through discipline, must be continually learned every day for the rest of our lives. And gracious contentment is something that is empowered by the strength supplied by Christ. And true contentment is ultimately only found in Christ.
Good post dealing with the issue of contentment when God’s will conflicts with our plans. We know that God’s plan is always better, it is just sometimes hard to feel it when it is happening.
