There are strong connections between being content at heart and overcoming adversity. But, that doesn’t mean that it is always easy to move to the place of contentment. Sometimes it seems impossible. In the midst of trials or sadness, ask God for His peace. Ask Holy Spirit to bring healing and happiness–and rejoice that He is working on your behalf.
Philippians 4:7 — Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Proverbs 17:22 — A cheerful heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit makes one sick.
Deuteronomy 31:8 — The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
