Contentment and Peace

I have always been a worrier and a "fixer". I have the tendency to think, and then over think, everything. Right now, I don't have a job. And while I know where I am going, I don't know what I will be doing when I get there. But rather than worrying and stressing everything, I am taking a completely new road(for me).

I am learning contentment. I think that we too often let the world define what makes life "good" and we confuse our wants with our needs. When faced with changes or uncertainty, you can either stress and worry (which will never change the outcome) or you can rest in the fact that God knows your needs even before you do and He will ALWAYS provide. And when we are focused on Him, our wants will line up with His will and plan for our life. In trusting and focusing on Him, you have contentment that is based on the only constant in life rather than the people, places and material things valued by the world. Those things are so very fleeting. That is true contentment and real peace. I have come to realize that is such a good place to be mentally and spiritually.
