"Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned to be content with whatever I have." Phillipians 4:11 NLT



By Renee Law
Contentment....God has been teaching me many things about that word. You see, I am from West Virginia. I have lived here 40 out of my almost 41 years. My goal in life was to move away to someplace I deemed as fun and exciting....a BIG city!

I have begged God and my husband to allow us to move somewhere else. Neither of them has allowed that to happen yet. I can say now that I am truly thankful that we are still here. Yes, thankful! You see, if God had opened any doors for us to get out I would never have learned to be content with where I was. I would have run as fast as I could. 

Do you ever feel that way about your body? Just completely discontent with what you see in the mirror?

If you're like me, you look in the mirror and think, “Why do I have to be bigger on the bottom half? Can I push some of this booty weight to the top?”
Or maybe you have the opposite problem. You wonder why you have to be so blessed on your top half? If you've read Shari’s book "Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad" you know which body type you are:B, O, D or X

No one seems to be happy with the letter they are (except maybe the X's, but even a balanced body like an X struggles with her body at times!)

Again, we are back to the word "contentment". We are just they way God wants us to be. 

Embrace the way He made you. God doesn't make mistakes. Your hips are not a mistake. Your thighs are not a mistake. Your blessed or small chest is not a mistake.


If you need a reminder of how to be content, visit Fashion Meets Faith's Contentment Board on Pinterest

You might just want to print some of these sayings on some small cards and post them on your mirror or in your car to remind you to be content...just where you are.

          You are His masterpiece just the way He created you!  Loved sharing with you today!
