How does our relationship with God help cultivate true contentment in us? It helps us realise that God is a good, caring Father. Jeremiah Burroughs explained, "Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God's wise and fatherly disposal in every condition." What does that mean? Contentment is we reach that point in our faith journey where we are thankful for what we have and remain patient in the midst of challenges. Even though we don’t fully understand, but we still trust in God’s hand. Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) 5 … be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." The fact that God is with us, is sufficient. We can be contented.
