Philippians chapter 4: 11-19, New Living Translation 

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 
I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
Even so, you have done well to share with me in my present difficulty.
I don’t say this because I want a gift from you. Rather, I want you to receive a reward for your kindness.
At the moment I have all I need—and more!
I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me.They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God. 
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

“We’ve all known people who claimed they’d be happy if only they were married, had children, had a big house, or had the right job. But most people who are banking on circumstantial contentment will find themselves in emotional bankruptcy sooner or later.

An unhappy person usually needs a change of heart more than a change of circumstances. “
