GOD'S PLAN FOR YOU

CONTENMENT IN THE LORD

Sometimes it’s easy to get distracted by the world around us and forget who we are and who we belong to. The world wants to convince us that we’ll be more successful when we have particular possessions, look a certain way, or learn to control how others see us. 
For the Christian, our goal is to become more like Jesus. The apostle Peter says it this way, “To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps” (1 Peter 2:21).
We wanted to share with you some resources that can help remind you that it’s who you are in Jesus that makes all the difference.
Do you ever struggle with contentment? 
It almost seems like the world wants us to be unhappy and dissatisfied. It’s like we’re on an endless treadmill to acquire more and more. But that’s not the life we’re called to. 
In Why Can’t I Be Content?, Tez Brooks uses a beloved pet’s example to examine what contentment looks like. This brief but powerful article is a helpful place to start if you need a refresher on what truly makes us happy. 
Do you ever wish you were someone else?
The short film B Me examines fulfillment from a whole new perspective. What if you had an app that allowed you to become the perfect version of yourself for any situation? Imagine being able to push a button and perfectly fit into any situation or group.
This three-and-a-half minute film helps remind us that there are no shortcuts to fitting in. The goal might not be about finding an ideal version of ourselves. 
The video is available in five languages, and we think you’ll find it to be an excellent resource for stirring up a conversation with family and friends on what true fulfillment looks like.

KEEP LOOKING TO JESUS!!!
