This is a recipe for contentment written by a woman named Ella, a missionary who lived in Africa in very primitive conditions:
-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.
1 Thessalonians 5:18-“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”
