Musings on…..The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment

Standard

This book is meaty, chunky, chewy, thick and rich.

Making you hungry yet?

well, it should make you feel content….

What is the rare jewel of contentment? in a nutshell: Focus.

where is your focus? Do you focus on circumstances or God?

Focusing on Gods grace is the key, because no matter how bad your life is right now, Gods grace is more abundant. God knows what you need and cares about more than anyone in your circumstances now.

Below are some quotes I highlighted:

Oh, you should answer your friends so who come and tell you that you must be content: No, I am willing to yield to God, and I am freely content.

A GRACIOUS HEART IS CONTENTED BY THE MELTING OF HIS WILL AND DESIRES INTO GOD’S WILL AND DESIRES; BY THIS MEANS HE GETS CONTENTMENT.

ok, I highlighted so many that it got a bit overwhelming to type it all out, so just read the book and find your own! 🙂
