I have been studying about Paul and his ship wreck. Paul did not fight the circumstances of his life, although they did get pretty rough; he chose to stay content.
Contentment in the Bible is always used in the present tense.
Situations change faster than you can flip a fritter. Your ice-cream gets warm and your coffee gets cold. While things happen to us, around us, or in us, we can choose contentment.
It is something we learn and can not explain. We either are or we are not. Philippians 4:11-12 "For I have learned to be content in whatever state I am in."
Have a contented day!
