But godliness with contentment is great gain.1 Timothy 6:6
I am content with life in Jesus Christ. It is enough to seek the Lord daily by prayer and His Word, the Bible, and to listen for His still, small voice of the Holy Spirit. This is a life of faith, without which it is impossible to please God. I see Him at work in my life, perfecting me and calling me deeper into holiness in Jesus. He’s started a good work in me and He’s faithful to complete it. It is enough to know that I belong to God and He belongs to me. I have a personal relationship with God. I can call on Him for anything and He will hear my cry and answer me in due season. It is a good life I have. Simple, peaceful and blessed. Everyone should know the goodness of God.
So lately I’ve been trying to lose weight. I’ve been making fresh juice and smoothies. I supplement that with some protein, tuna fish! I’ve loved tuna fish for as long as I can remember. I’ve always eaten 2 cans at a time, but recently I questioned that. Do I really need 2 cans of tuna? So since then I’ve been eating 1 can of tuna at a time and it has been satisfying me. I’ve discovered that I can be content with less, much less than society says one needs to be happy. My peace comes from knowing God through His Son, Jesus Christ. I don’t need things to be happy. I don’t need TV. I don’t need lust for food or other things. Just give me Jesus.
