A Christian's Twelve Practical Principles to the Path of Contentment

By Rebekah L. Holt

Written January 2011


Listen to Rebekah discuss this article on April 13, 2012 as a guest on The John and Kathy Show, The WORD FM, Pittsburgh, PA

"Contentment requires humility, which requires a willingness to receive what He gives, to relinquish what He takes, to suffer what He sends, to do what He says and to be what He requires." Elisabeth Elliot


    Learning contentment takes a bit of spiritual work. Here are few practical principles that have helped me. Everything written here is not original but is gleaned from reading and studying on the topic. I am in a continual process of living out these principles daily and can testify that these principles work, as long as they are applied.

1. Have the Right Mindset

    One of the first steps of gaining true Christian contentment is to have a foundation of Salvation in Jesus Christ and to have your mind continually renewed in Him.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).

    A Christian's mindset will not match the world's way of thinking, discerning or analyzing the situation or circumstances that you face. As Elisabeth Elliot said, "What the world calls "common sense" often has nothing to do with the will of God in your life."

Jesus Christ: The Way to Life

Rebekah L. Holt


Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me. John 14:6

    Newspapers, commercials, advertisements, websites, magazines—they are all filled to the brim with formulas, exercise routines, diet plans, therapies, advisors, philosophers and more to sell you a better way of life. It remains true that people are inherently in quest for an oasis of beauty, a summit of fulfillment, a passage to peace, a purpose to exist and reprieve from toil, weariness, despair. As reflected by the unending drone of materialism and “me-mantras” in our culture—the things of this earth do not provide a lasting satisfaction.

A Woman's Right


A Woman's Right

Rebekah L. Holt


A Woman’s Right!

What is this?

Three words that find their measure,

Snuffing out a gift—a child,

A human life meant to treasure.


A Woman’s Right!

Can this justify?

Suppressing evidence and ethical absolution?

Truth be told—it’s a crime!

Millions expelled by abortive ablution.


A Woman’s Right!

Can it be?

A pumping heart stops beating.

A missing life—a person lost.

Generations never breathing.


A Woman’s Right!

Does it merit?

Abortion-on-demand thus classified,

Political right—and moral law,

While babies are mortally horrified?


A Woman’s Right!

Does it differ?

From an American slave worked nation?

Socially demanded—upheld by law!

An atrocity of human discrimination.


A Woman’s Right!

Cannot be right!

When exterminating as if a mission.

Unwanted babies—protect their rights!

Each deserves the American vision.


A Woman’s Right!

A hard choice?

To grant a bequest to us?

A breath of air—a matchless life.

Not a mere glob of fetus.


A Woman’s Right!

I denounce fully!

Though decreed as “Politically correct.”

Abortion kills—murdering millions,

Denying rights to all but a privileged select.


A Woman’s Right!

Then I stand!

Demanding recognition.

A right to live—for all, for all!!

Each human—no exception.


A Woman’s Right!

Truth is ours!

Science declares with vivacity!

At conception—life begins,

Designed with unique complexity.


A Woman’s Right!

Use it well!

Speak the truth with conviction!

Human worth—Cherished. Specific.

Bearing an Image since Creation.


A Woman’s Right!

Arise to fight!

Protect the innocent and defenseless!

End Abortion’s womb holocaust.

America—Awake! Come to your senses!
