Contentment: Seeing God's Goodness (31-Day Devotionals for Life)
“Be content. Pursue contentment. Repent of discontent. Weve all heard the exhortations and rebukes. We all agree with them. But how? we cry. How do we get there? Megan Hill comes to the rescue with a practical daily devotional full of how-tos and why-tos. But, more importantly, she shows that the remedy for discontent lies ultimately not within the how and why of a daily technique but in the who of a daily relationship with Jesus Christ.”See All

“Megan Hill exposes the lie that seduces so many of us, demonstrating that a change in our circumstances will not improve our lives. With clear, practical, biblical reflection, Hill leads us to the greener pastures of Christian contentment. But she doesnt simply tell us to stop our complaining; she tells us to embrace Christ, the suffering yet contented Savior. I am glad for this resource that teaches us to live his life of holy, surrendered desire.”See All

While the world insists that satisfying our desires is the path to fulfillment, this daily devotional teaches us the value of seeking contentment instead, providing practical approaches to cultivating thankfulness in specific life circumstances that make discontent easy.
