Verse of the Day ~ Philippians 4:11

Verse of the Day 

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

Philippians 4:11

Philippians is one of my favorite books in the New Testament because it’s the first book I ever read in the Word of God. I had been given an easy to read version called JB Philips and I still have the Bible decades later.

Tucked in the pages of chapter four is our verse of the day, and it’s become one of “my” verses that encourage my heart. It’s given me so much direction in the last ten years, along with Proverbs 3:5-6, and God taught me to be content no matter how much the recession changed my life, how much an empty nest left me bewildered, and how my journey in this decade looked like a roller coaster. I learned contentment in its purest form.
