Contentment

It seems, in blog land, that many people start the year with a ‘word’. Like a goal of something they want to achieve in the new year. I am going to choose a word too.

Mine is CONTENTMENT.

Merriam-Webster defines contentment as: the state of being happy and satisfied: the state of being content.

(While looking for photos on google to put in my post, I found the one just above this line, and it linked me to a new blog DHicksOnline blog. I am enjoying reading there!)

I also found a web page that has 100 bible verses about contentment. This one stood out to me.

1 Timothy 6:6-11

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

I want to work on Contentment, and Patience, and I want to be a better steward for God and His children.

CONTENTMENT. That’s my word.

Sounds like a good word. I have seen this also out in blog land. Not sure what word I would pick. I will have to think about it for awhile.

Contentment also shows thankfulness, God has blessed us well. Happy New Year, Michelle!

Most days my word is survival :D Not that I have any hardships, I just screw up a lot. Get angry, snipe, put things off. I'm a mess. Maybe mine should be 'keep trying'! :D

Great word! We talked about being content in Sunday school this morning. I'm keeping my word from last year, progress, since it seemed to work for me, and I still need lots of progress on projects and in other areas, too.
