Contentment


If the Lord sets you to guard a lonely post in perfect stillness from all active work, you ought to be just as content as to be in the midst of the active warfare. It is no virtue to love the Master's work better than the Master's will.

Hannah Whitall Smith from "The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life"

I really like her book too Gail. It is so convicting. I constantly need this gentle reminder about what Godly contentment truly is. Have a blessed Sabbath!
