The secret to being a satisfied woman {and the movie Courageous}

Would you say that you are a satisfied woman?    

Did you know there is a secret to being a woman of satisfaction?

Today we will look at writer, speaker and teacher Priscilla Shirer's new book, "The Resolution for women."  Before I delve in to today's post, I want to let you all know there is a book, "The Resolution for men," that is out.  But not only that, the creators of the movie Fireproof haven created an awesome movie that will be coming out at the end of the month.

Ladies, make some date nights!  Grab your husbands, your sons and encourage them to see the movie. I put the trailer below.

For those of you getting this post by email.  You can see this awesome trailer by going here.  See the trailer.  Don't forget to scroll down to quiet the music.



Now ...

Getting back to the question of you being a satisfied woman...

Society has many messages that screams to us, "What we have isn't enough!"

"Out with the old.  In with the new!"


"A satisfied woman is a rarity", says the author.  She goes on to say, "She is shockingly noticeable to an unsatisfied world."


A satisfied woman is a woman of substance.


A satisfied woman is a woman who has CHOSEN contentment over displeasure.


A satisfied woman's heart rests. 


Girls I wanna tell you something important ... it is vital to our state of health, our mind, and how we carry ourselves as women.  Keep this near your heart.  Tuck it away and never forget about it, because I promise you . . . you will have to revisit this again and again.

"Whatever God's given or not given you, He's done so for a specific reason—a reason known only to Him perhaps, but one you can trust with full confidence ..."

The secret to being a satisfied woman we must realize is a learned behavior. A choice. Our choice.

Be a woman who chooses to be content in whatever circumstance you find yourself in.  Like the Apostle Paul, we must know how to be content with a little or with a lot.  So that in whatever circumstance we find ourselves in, we will have learned the secret of being content.

And we, too, with boldness of confidence will echo these words spoken many centuries ago:

"I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.  I know both how to handle a little and I know how to have a lot.  In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need.  I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me" {Phil. 4:11-13} 


When unearthed and put to use, this secret is able to bring a full measure of enjoyment and emotional stability to any kind of life experience, no matter how dull or distressing.~ P. Shirer
A project for you to work on


Make a content list.  Label one side "My needs."  Label the other side, "God's provisions."  Then match up your needs with the ways God is currently meeting them.  Put the list but visit it often ... especially during the times where you are tempted to lean toward a dissatisfied heart.

  1. I do like your idea to be a 'content' list!  I find myself focussing on what I don't have too often :(  It's been nice to visit today - I came over via Ann's blog.  May your days be filled with His peace and His love!

  2. Crystal,

    We all have a tendency to fall into the category of focusing on 'what we don't have.'  Learning to be content is a practice we will work on perfecting, I think, until God calls us home.
