Present and thankful

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. Phil. 4:11-12

Sometimes it’s not the need itself that creates discontent, it’s the tendency to focus on those things we think are missing from our lives. When we actively appreciate the present, just as it is, we enjoy our lives more and we tend to give and share more freely. Contentment and thankfulness feed off one another.

Lord, thank you for all I have right now. Period.
