Have you ever been so overwhelmed with life’s hardships that you felt like you couldn’t go through another day? I certainly have—many times!

There may be many reasons why we become discontented. And sometimes we are unaware that we even are. Learn what the signs and causes of our discontentment are.
What is your definition of contentment? If you think it means NO challenges, pain, or stress, you will never be content in life! Jesus said in this world we would have tribulation (Jn 16:33). Yet God wants us to be content, and even commands it (Heb 13:5). So we need to figure out what God means by being content and how the Apostle Paul could say, “For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”
It’s so easy to complain and grumble. How did the Apostle Paul learn to be content in ANY circumstance? This is the first of a 7-part series on how to have a contented and grateful heart in 2023. If you find yourself complaining often and feeling empty inside, please read on.
