In The Meantime - Yes, You Can
What do you do when there’s nothing you can do? Relationally, financially, professionally, physically, or academically, It just is what it is. There’s nothing you can do to change your situation. Challenging circumstances can make you jealous or resentful. They can make you angry with God. They can breed discontentment. But the problem with discontentment is that it can drive you in self-destructive directions that will eventually leave you with regret. So, what is the secret of finding contentment even when times are tough?

What do you do when there's nothing you can do?
What do you do when you find yourself in a circumstance or a set of circumstances, or a season of life and there's really no way forward and there's no way out?
When you're in a season of life where things really aren't going well for you, other people's successes are exaggerated. Your failures are exaggerated. So it's easy to jealous, easy to get resentful, easy to get angry.

The Apostle Paul also said that even in the midst of the most incredible adversity, there is a way to find...

Contentment
Contentment is the ability to stop striving internally even though things on the outside are out of control.

- Philippians
- Colossians
- Philemon
The apostle Paul had no idea what hung in the balance of his decision to remain faithful when remaining faithful was difficult.

The apostle Paul had no idea what hung in the balance of his decision to continue to follow Jesus when the circumstances mitigated against it.

The reason he was able to accomplish what he did was because of his adversity, and because of his response to his adversity.
YOU have no idea what or who hangs in the balance of your decision to remain faithful when everything around you says, "be faithless."

- Colossians
- Philemon

This is NOT what Paul meant.

I can't.
--------
He can.
--------
He can through me.

Learn the secret of contentment: Christ in you, empowering you.
That thing - that thing in our life that stirs our discontentment more than anything else - is the epicenter of where God has the greatest potential to do the greatest work in your life.
