Keith and I are continuing to read “The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment” by Jeremiah Burroughs. There’s so much to “chew on” that I think I could just keep reading this book over and over and continue to glean truth for my soul.
I recently read a section on contentment which likened a contented heart to Heaven. My desire is to live a contented life and thus a restful, joyful one that is satisfied in Him alone…I have a ways to go!!
“Thus you see that contentment brings comfort to a man’s life, fills it full of comfort in this world; the truth is, it is even a Heaven on earth. What is heaven, but the rest and quiet of a man’s spirit; that is the special thing that makes the life of Heaven, there is rest and joy, and satisfaction in God. So it is in a contented spirit: there is rest and joy and satisfaction in God. In Heaven there is singing praises to God; a contented heart is always praising and blessing God. You have Heaven while on earth when you have a contented spirit…”
