[are you content?]

[are you content?]

I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty.

Apostle Paul, Philippians 4:11-12, MSG

Today, for the second time in my professional life, I have been asked “How can we make you happy?”

I never know how to answer that question. As I pondered on that while making tea for mom and I, I realized that I have taught myself to enjoy whatever I get.

What’s wrong with that, you might ask?

Well, at first glance – nothing.

However, there was something I have realized which sort of made me reassess what I believe.

I have learned to be content in most things, but I forgot that there is so much more that is out there! I mean, God’s got EVERYTHING (and whatever He hasn’t got yet, He can easily create)… and here I am, just content with breadcrumbs while the feast cooked for me awaits in silence.

Makes me wonder, how much am I missing just because I do not ask?
