Don't miss this bundle of Learning Contentment and Virtuous to practice self-control, taught by Rachel's mother Nancy Wilson. And before trials come, as cancer came to Hannah Greiser's home, and all manner of trouble and suffering that David and the Psalters sang about, take two more books: The Clouds Ye So Much Dread, a beautiful blend of memoir, theology, meditation, and storytelling, and Psalms for Trials, forty-four bite-sized reflections on the Psalms, each ending with concrete recommendations on how to use the Psalms in your prayers and more importantly, how to live them out.
"We tend to think of the virtue of contentment as a great dud, as though it is the virtue that does not want anything and has no opinions. Contentment, meaning not too hot, not too cold, not thirsty, not hungry. Basically, the most boring emotion that can be had. We think thankfulness is similarly passive. But contentment and gratitude, some of the smallest seeds, grow some of the biggest trees. These are some of the wildest forces for change in this world. Contentment says to God, “Where You put me, I will honor You. Where You send me, I will go. Where You are, I will be glad.” Gratitude says to God that you accept what He has given you to do, and you will do it, not grudgingly, but with joy.”
