Being Content

This is my quotes I have made in my previous journals:
“Okay, I have hearing loss (deaf) and multiple sclerosis, and those are the ways of life for me. I take silence and pain as come and I have learned master them in my life. My disabilities do not have me. I have the disabilities and I accept them because I know who I am from the inside. Everything has its wonders, even silence and pain, and I learn whatever disabilities and difficulties I may be in, I am happily content.”
Proverbs 19:23 The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.

Philippians 4:11-12 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

1 Timothy 6:8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."

When you cannot answer a skeptic, be content to wait for more light; but never forsake a great principle. J.C. Ryle

"This is God's universal purpose for all Christian suffering - more contentment in God and less satisfaction with self." John Piper
