Contentment is Gain {Bible Art Journaling}

Bible Art 1Tim 6-6 Contentment

I came across this verse recently. It hit home, because I recognize that being content is usually a challenge for me. Seems like there is a fine line between being bored/boring and being content. Perhaps contentment is more a spiritual state, whereas boredom is a non-spiritual state relative to activity level.

Also, on a deeper level, I am convicted that contentment should naturally follow a recognition that God is in control and is directing my steps (and the steps of those I love). I say “convicted” because it is an area of my life that I know needs work.

At any rate, when I saw this verse, “Godliness with contentment is great gain,” (1 Timothy 6:6), I knew there was a divine direction, rather than coincidence, behind my “coming across” that verse.

We have beautiful birds visiting our feeders this winter. On Christmas Eve day it snowed here, and I took a few pictures of the cardinals, especially beautiful against the snow.

So when I decided to do a Bible art page on this verse, this beautiful cardinal came to my mind as a “picture” of contentment.

I want to be godly, and I want to be content.
