Contentment is living a life totally surrendered to the Lord. Circumstances will not bother us because we know that our God will take care of all our needs. We learn to become happy and content in moments of plenty and scarcity because we know that all these things shall pass, even temporary adversities and trials. Not that we will just fold our arms and wait for the blessings of God to fall down on our laps. We must always do our best to provide for our needs but expectant of God's divine providence in our lives. God will always make a way for us even in the most impossible situations, for He is a loving Father, ever loving and gracious to His beloved children. Did He not admonish us not to worry what we shall eat or wear for He feeds the birds of the air and clothes the lilies of the field whose beauty surpasses all the pomp and pageantry of Solomon's wardrobes? Remember how Jesus fed the five thousand in the wilderness with five loaves of bread and two fishes? And how God rained down manna and quails to the Jews during their desert trek? Let us live simple lives, fearing the Lord and walking in His ways. For the Lord who created the whole universe and countless of galaxies, who created the earth and everything in it, shall never let us suffer deprivation if we obey His will and walk in His ways. Living a simple life and thanking God for all the blessings we receive gives us a life of pure contentment.
