Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
Living in a world where we're brain washed to not be content or satisfied with our current state of existence is the carrot on the stick that keeps many of us in the rat race enslaved to a system that depends on our ill-contentment to grease the wheels of commerce. Not only is commerce dependent on our lifestyle of dissatisfaction, but just about every other area of our human existence too. You only have a 2014 model?! Get the 2015 now, and put down an arm and leg for deposit! You only have twenty pair of shoes?! What!? You definitely need twenty more! How bout we get you hooked up with my mortgage broker and we upgrade you to a mega-mansion on a ten thousand dollar a year salary?! Sound good to ya? You won't even have to make an interest payment for thirty years?! Be dis-satisfied is the message of the day. Your marriage isn't quite good enough, so get something new! Your body is outta shape, so buy the latest potion or pill for the quick fix! You're not smart enough! Don't be satisfied until you have the American Dream! The American Dream sounds more like a nightmare!
Friends, just be content in all things as life unfolds, and the weights and burdens of this world will quickly lighten up. Be satisfied with your present life no matter the situation, circumstance, or test, and enjoy the journey that you're on while knowing that in the end the rewards of Heaven are waiting on you!
Life is a journey. We can't forget that we're in a process of maturation in Christ that's designed to bring us into a full grown bride ready to be received by the bride groom. Learn to be satisfied in whatever state you may find yourself, choose to be happy, and enjoy the work of the Father in your life! May the grace of Jesus be with you always!

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 1Timothy 6:6-8
