I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
Contentment requires hard choices. In Philippians 4, Paul tells us he had to learn the secret of being content. And that secret is a hard learning process. After my accident in which I became paralyzed, my occupational therapist taught me how to feed myself using arm-splints. Many times, I felt like giving up because more applesauce landed in my lap than in my mouth. But I had to make a hard choice. Was I going to let embarrassing failure stop me? Never. I kept choosing the hard path of lifting that heavy spoon to my mouth. I never got back the use of my hands, but I did learn to feed myself. And what’s more, I learned to be content. If you are feeling restless in a painful situation, learn the secret: make choices over and over to trust God. And keep trusting, even when it’s hard. You will find contentment right around your corner.
