Being Content

An excerpt from chapter 7.

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:11-13

“The less and less I have, the more and more I realize how little I really need. Thank You Lord for showing me how to be content. Help me to hold all things loosely. The next time You ask me to do without something, teach me how to be content without it.”

An excerpt from Three Days at Sea by Delana H. Stewart.

Since there are twenty-five chapters in my new book Three Days at Sea: Soul flotation when the waves are pulling you under, I decided to share a quote a day (one from each chapter) until Christmas. Hope you enjoy them! Come back tomorrow for the next one…
