Recently I have been reading The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs, one of the Puritan paperbacks.  A dear friend of ours sent us the whole set to bring with us to the field!  What a treasure!  Anyway this quote has really pierced my heart. Even though I am not yet finished pondering it, I wanted to share it with you.

"Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God's wise and fatherly disposal in every condition."

That is a truly wonderful book. It has transformed my life in many ways. I read it about 4 years ago, when I was a brand new Christian, and then last year led a ladies study where we worked through it over the course of about 5 months. It was time well spent.

Thank you so much for that quote on contentment. I needed to hear that right now! You are ministering to us even in the States.

thank you,
