We are truly never going to come across a time in our lives when everything is all rosy and perfect. We are all always going to have problems to face and struggles that we are dealing with.
You might be looking at the above statement right now and be just a tad bit discouraged to be reminded of this. I know for sure that I am! Yet, I am also reminded of Paul's words to the Philippians.
I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.
Like Paul, we truly can be content in any and all circumstances, even if they are not the most ideal. God has blessed us by providing us with the basic essentials we need to survive here on this earth. Not only has He given us these essentials, He has given us far more than we can ever even realize!
Sure, our circumstances may not be what we want them to be. Yet next time you find yourself to be weighed down by your circumstances, remember to start thanking God for all of His goodness, mercy, and blessing. Remember that whatever your circumstances, you can say it is well with my soul, as in they hymn in the video below.
