Quotes I’m struggling through…

“Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.” — Jeremiah Burroughs (Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment)

“Everything about which we are tempted to complain may be the very instrument whereby the Potter intends to shape His clay into the image of His Son.” — Elisabeth Elliot

“No soul can be really at rest until it has given up all dependence on everything else and has been forced to depend on the Lord alone. As long as our expectation is from other things, nothing but disappointment awaits us.” — Hannah Whitall Smith (God of All Comfort)
