Satisfaction ~ Contentment ~ Blessings

When stress ~ difficulties ~ obstacles ~ and unhappiness ~ start to wear on you, it’s natural to start feeling depressed and down.

Looking to the Lord and meditating on God’s word every day will help ease the pressure from life’s circumstances.

Our daughter and grandson live in another state and I was sure that we’d some how see them often, especially with all the technology, and travel that seem to shorten the miles.

But when things come up over and over that prevent us seeing or talking to them, I feel like I get the wind knocked out of me.  I start lacking contentment because I want our whole family together.

(I jump on this pretty quickly as I know without a shadow of a doubt that no matter what I want ~ I am already extremely blessed!)

It may seem like a small thing to some people but sometimes the little things are a big deal when you’re going through it yourself.


When this occurs, no matter what challenges or disappointments we face, it’s essential to keep looking to and trusting in the Lord.

 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.  That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.  I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.  Ecclesiastes 3: 12-14

God will never leave us nor forsake us.  He wants a relationship with us and for us to look to Him and spend time with Him.

Contentment comes from the Lord and it’s something that is missing in our society.  In order to market products (or ideas) effectively, companies try to convince us that we need to buy their stuff ~ or way of life ~ in order to be content and happy.

Although we all know better than to believe that lie, it can still catch us off guard and cause doubt and unhappiness.


Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU.”  Hebrews 13:5
