I re-blogged this because the quotes from this Worry and Trust article are encouraging.
- How a fretting disposition can lead us into further problems: ‘Contentment delivers us from an abundance of temptations. Oh, the temptations that men of discontented spirits are subject to! The Devil loves to fish in troubled waters.’ (p.126)
- On Learning from Life’s Tough Experiences: ‘I make no question but you find it so, that your worst voyages have proved your best.’ (p.214)
- Should the Believer be an Overcomer or a Worrier? ‘The spirit of a Christian should be a lion-like spirit; as Jesus Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah (so he is called) so we should manifest something of the lion-like spirit of Jesus Christ.’ (p.148)
When I find a couple hours I am going to read this book – it is on currently on sale for $1.99 as a Kindle book
Reblogged from Church History Blog:
The Bible encourages us not to worry. It’s a bit different from ‘Don’t worry – be happy’ because the source of our contentment is in the character and sovereignty of God. But still, we need to know the calming voice of God.
Philippians 4:6 says
‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’ (NIV)
