Prescription for Contentment

A few years ago when my husband was deployed, I had been dealing with a lot of anxiousness in my life. All of us deal with this. Are you saying to yourself right now that you never are anxious or are not content? Ok then, have you ever complained about anything? You know you have. Have you ever complained about that person driving in the car in front of you because they are going to slow?! Anyway....

That one year when my husband was deployed was one of the years where I grew the most, I don't mean bodyweight, I mean spiritual growth. I was became stronger that year spiritually. I was apart of a wonderful Ladies' Evening Bible Study that year and it really blessed my life. The study that we did was Calm My Anxious Heart. If you are apart of a Ladies' Bible Study Group at you Church or PWOC at your Chapel, I recommend this Bible Study, especially if you have ladies and their spouses are deployed.

I am happy to say that I have been anxious free for 3 years! It's not something that happens over night, trust me, it takes a lot of work and a lot of pray.

Here's the secret recipe:

Prescription for Contentment

~Never allow yourself to complain about anything---not even the weather.
~Never picture yourself in any other circumstances or someplace else.
~Never compare your lot with another's.
~Never allow yourself to wish this or that had been otherwise.
~Never dwell on tomorrow---remember that tomorrow is God's, not ours.
