Leo Babauta reminds us that, "What's important is being content with life, not stuff, and thereby reducing your needs." While we have certain needs to survive, we can reduce what is required to be happy to having God in our lives and being content with what He has given us!
God is with us and promises to never leave or forsake us. Even when we start to move away from God, He is there for us. He provides for us, giving us what we need. Because God knows what we need, we can depend on Him. We can feel His presence in our lives. We can find rest and peace in Him. We can be content and happy in Him!
Be content and happy, not because of your stuff, but because you have God!
Thank You for knowing me and providing for me. Help me to be content and happy with all that You have given me. In Jesus I pray, amen.
