This past Friday we had a woman who spoke to us about Cultivating Contentment in my heart and in my home. She spoke about 3 areas: Body Image, Relationships, and Possessions. "Comparison doesn't yield contentment." In each of these areas, don't we often compare ourselves to others. Comparing yourself to others is going to make us the opposite of content. We need to start being more thankful for who God made us and what He gave us. Gratitude! It helps! It has helped me tremendously. If you find yourself discontent most the time, I encourage you to start your own list!
