Contentment: Seeing God's Goodness (31-Day Devotionals for Life)
'If I could just have a little more if my situation were just a little different! My plan for my life would be perfect—if it would just come true!'
Discontentment is a dangerous attitude that drives us away from God—and, ironically, getting what we want wouldn’t fix it! So what will?
Megan Hill takes us on a month-long journey to lift our eyes from our own expectations for our lives and fix them on the God who is more reliable than our changing circumstances—and who ordains them for our good.
- Teaches us the value of contentment
- Helps us to cultivate a thankful heart
- Provides immensely practical approaches for pursuing contentment in specific types of circumstances that trigger our worry and anxiety
"Contentment is a cultivated fruit, learned through study and practice. These daily readings refocus our attention off of ourselves . . . and onto the goodness and faithfulness of our God. It's a needed and helpful book, and I highly recommend it." --Melissa Kruger, Author, The Envy of Eve: Finding Contentment in a Covetous World; Women s Ministries Coordinator, Uptown Church, Charlotte, North Carolina
"Megan Hill comes to the rescue with a practical daily devotional full of how-to's and why-to's [and], more importantly . . . the 'who' of a daily relationship with Jesus Christ." --David Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary; Author, The Happy Christian and Christians Get Depressed Too
