Linda Gabriel — March 31, This book was very profitable and helpful to me in this day of materialism, covetousness, and greed. Even though I have a very comfortable life, I still find myself complaining and worrying — whether outwardly or in my heart — about trivial matters, and this book really helped put everything into proper perspective.

Burroughs does a wonderful job of reminding the reader that we are merely pilgrims passing through this world. That it is natural not to be comfortable here, because it is not our home. Right at the start of the book, Burroughs offers this definition of contentment:. He goes proceeds to dissect this definition and expound on each of these aspects of contentment.

Burroughs explains that achieving contentment is a lot like a math equation; he observes:. It may be that while you had these things, they shared with God in your affection, a great part of the stream of your affection ran that way: God would have the full stream run to Him now.

In other words, God will not share His place in your life with any other thing or person. In fact, if we are not seeking all we need only from God, then we are idolaters. And I found the truths to be life-changing. This was one of those books that, as soon as I finished it I felt like I wanted to turn to the beginning and start again.

I am still in the process of learning to turn complaints into contentment, and may God give me the grace to improve in this area. Debby Murphy — October 8, I loved this book. It is filled with practical wisdom concerning an important topic that I have never really read about anywhere else. Ana — June 22, Wonderful book for all Christians to read. We cannot be more greatful to God for great wisdom of Holy Spirit poured out to our Puritan brothers which is helping church to grow in all ages.

Here Jeremiah Burroughs very practically leads us to understand the routhes of Christan contentment, but also discontentment and murmuring. This really encourages us to apply the Bible wisdom in every day leaving. Ojoje Adeyi — September 15, Robert Norman — April 20, Dare I say that this book has changed my life?

So many trials, worries and concerns, but all is dissolved away now in the contentment of all situations as ordained by God. Your Testimonial.
