Contentment Challenge || Amy Riley Photography

January 16, 2016


This word is what I want to define my year…really the rest of my life.

I have plenty. I have way more than I need. But why do I feel the need to continually buy more stuff, want more stuff, do more stuff? While none of it is necessarily bad…could it be keeping me from being content in God? Keeping us from financial goals that are really important to us?  Keeping me from being generous & less aware of others who are in need? Keeping me from finding joy in relationships? Keeping me from running into Target to purchase ONE simple thing 😜? Stuff gives me happiness that is so fleeting & does not sustain. This year I am freeing myself from the need of stuff. I am asking God to replace my “want” for stuff with a “need” for more of Him.

“I am not saying I need anything. I have learned to be happy with whatever I have.” Philippians 4:11

I have started a #contentmentchallenge for 21 days. I am starting again {continuing mine} on Feb. 1st and would love for you to join me on this adventure.
