All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.
1 Timothy 6:6-8
6 but godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 for we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked;
Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
1 Timothy 6:8
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
2 Corinthians 12:10
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
