We Need Godliness With Contentment!

We Need Godliness and Contentment!

Godliness with contentment

is a good place to be.

Christ wants this for all, beginning

with you and me!

Godliness with contentment

is of great gain.

We have everything we need in Jesus’

precious name!

Being content with what we have

should be our goal.

We need to allow the peace of God

to touch our soul.

Let’s trust God with whatever

we have every day.

Let’s listen for his will in our life,..

Then trust and obey.

The things we have are here for just a

moment in time.

May we have a spirit of thankfulness

in our mind.

Let’s walk humbly each day! With God,

we’re blessed!

Simply giving Jesus our trust and faith is

always the best!

Let’s trust Jesus for the things he does

or doesn’t give us!

Let’s allow his words of truth to live

within us!

Let’s be content with the things in life,

each day we live!

Only then will we know the joy that

Jesus freely gives!

1 Timothy 6:6-11 New International Version (NIV)

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
