Living with Contentment

Dear Church,
The Bible says that godliness accompanied with contentment is great and abundant gain. What I take from that is, a godly person who is content is in the very best place he can possibly be.
Joy doesn’t come from having your circumstances in order and under control; it comes from what’s in your heart. For example, the world is full of people who have what they think they want, and they’re still not happy. In fact, some of the most unhappy people in the world are the people who seem to “have it all”.
Contentment is not about fame or being well-known, how much money you have, your position at work or your social circle. It’s not found in your level of education or what side of the tracks you live on. Contentment is a heart attitude.
There’s nobody happier than a truly thankful person, a truly content person. The word content means ‘being satisfied to the point where nothing disturbs you no matter what’s going on, but not satisfied to the point that you never want any change.’
We all want things to get better. But where you are right this minute doesn’t have to disturb you. You can choose to believe that God is working and things are changing, and you will see the result of it in due time.
Life is about the choices we make, so choose contentment and satisfaction every single day of your life. You won’t go wrong when you do.

Blessings to you,

H.O.P.E. Haven is a ministry to homeless people in northwest Houston. They are dedicated to moving people from crisis to lifelong self-sufficiency. One of the ways they do that is by partnering each client with three mentors. If you are interested in reaching out to Houston’s homeless in this way please contact the church office as soon as possible.
Within this past week we received a request for ladies to mentor a woman in her 50’s, however, there is always a need for both men and women to serve. You can find more information at
 Again, if you are interested in mentoring Houston’s homeless to lead them to life change please contact the church office at your earliest convenience.
