31 Days: When Contentment is Hard

Sometimes life seems to be drowning us. It’s too heavy, too much, too painful, too dark. Too inescapable.

What happens to contentment in those times? How do you maintain deeply rooted joy in the face of depression, tragedy, unchangeable circumstances?

  1. Stay on your knees. Pray through it. There was a time when my prayers were mostly, “God get me through this moment. Just get me through this moment and then the next one.” He did.
  2. Get practical help. Support from others, medical attention, counseling, whatever might related to your situation.
  3. Persevere in hope. God will not leave you there. He will not leave you.

God walks us through seasons, and some of them are difficult, even excruciating. Remember in those times that He hasn’t changed, and there is always hope in that.
