Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. (1 Timothy 6:6-8 ESV)
Dear Holy Spirit, When You gave me my word of the year “Contentment” for 2020, You really had big things for me to learn, didn’t You? And the core of it all is simply to be content in You. To trust You to provide my daily bread and not to focus on temporary matters. It’s a lesson that I’m slowing beginning to understand, but I expect I’ll need reminders for a lifetime. Please, help us all to seek Your provision daily. To trust that You know our needs even better than we do. And to trust that You alone will provide them. Thank You, Holy Spirit for Your patience as I learn these truths. In Jesus’ Holy Name, I pray, Amen.
