Secret to Being Happy.....

.....Is being content exactly where we are.  Paul writes from prison in Philippians 4:11 "Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am."

It is easy to compare and feel lack with our "in your face" social media apps, but be reminded - God didn't equip us with the grace for someone else's life.  You are meant to be exactly where you are today.  He is using your current circumstances for His divine plan, sweet friend.   When you begin to want and compare, remember Paul's words about peace with self in Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things."  Live intentionally today - if you think any other thoughts than these - IT IS OK - but throw them out, and dwell on the promises of God.  Trust Him with what He has planned for your life.  It is good!

I love and trust God so much that I only want what He wants for me.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.
