"You have been my help; do not leave me nor forsake me."(Ps.27:9)
Look back on the trouble that God has brought you through. Can you remember the times when your feet had almost gone and your steps had nearly slipped? Then say, with thankful emotion and confidence, "You have been my help." (Charles H. Spurgeon)

"True godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.
After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it.
So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content."

O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.
Prayer guards hearts and minds and causes God to bring peace out of chaos. (Beth Moore)
"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Phil.4:6-7)

"...Be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you." (1 Peter 5:6)

If you’re going to enjoy the present, you must omit all worries about your future. Worry, hands-down, is the greatest killjoy of them all. You cannot be joyful and worried at the same time. Paul’s antidotes are these verses: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done” (Philippians 4:6 NLT). You can either worry or you can pray. (Rick Warren)
