"But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit." Jer. 17:7-8.
There is a verse from an old hymn that goes "Trust and obey For there's no other way To be happy in Jesus But to trust and obey".
Hmmm, trust Jesus, take him at his Word, follow Him....there's where we will find peace and contentment, like Paul---"I've learned these secret of being content in any and every situation"...his secret? Jesus, trusting and following his Word.
