In the ever-changing points of frustration that is 2020 it is a challenge to be content and happy in every situation and circumstance. Philippians 4:13 is a very familiar passage that says, “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me”, but we often miss the verses before that focus on the “all things” Paul is talking about. When he says, “all things”, though there is a greater implication, he is also focusing on his ability to be content/happy if times are good or even when times are very bad. How does he do keep cool when things suck? …He says that his relationship with Jesus Christ is the “secret of his contentment”. When your circumstances rise above your ability to remain content/happy, remember you can do “all things” through Christ who will strengthen you, even being content/happy in the midst of crazy.

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content in any circumstance. I have experienced times of need and times of abundance. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of contentment, whether I go satisfied or hungry, have plenty or nothing. I am able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”⁃ Philippians 4:11-13 NET
