This word has taken up residence in my thoughts lately. Along with Paul's words from Philippians 4:11... "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances..." But I'm left with some questions. Paul totally left us hanging! I want to ask him,

But what does contentment mean? 

What does it look like? 

And how the heck do I GET it?

Is it a choice? It is learned with practice? 

Maybe it's both. 

Paul chose to be content rather than to depend on a change in circumstances to fill a need. I don't know about you, but that gets me.

Let's take that a little deeper...

It's possible to be content in my current situation and still prefer different circumstances. 

Hope that thought encourages you.
