About this title


A Note from Jill Briscoe

Dear Friends,

You will notice the special emphasis of this book is contentment. Statistics show that a large percentage of ministry wives don't like what they do! If there is that much discontentment, there is no question there will be discontented spouses as well. We cannot go cold as Christians without lowering the temperature of everyone else around us.

Discontented believers do not encourage unbelievers to believe! They do no excite believers to develop an exuberant faith. What's more, discontentment shows, and that's not good. You can't hide unhappiness of soul. You may be going through the motions of ministry because you know how to do it, but if there's no joy, there's not much hope of infectious multiplication in evangelism or spiritual growth in the church. What can we do find contentment in ministry? Let's use an acrostic.

Confess your discontentment. Paul said, 'learn to be contentandquot; in Philippians 4. And confession is a good place to start.

Order your private life. Check your priorities, talk them over with your partners or close friends.

Nourish your relationship. Do you have a friend who can encourage and challenge you? Will she call you on your discontented attitude?

Try counting your blessings, not your troubles! Counting andquot;a blessing a day keeps the devil away!andquot;

Expect the devil to whisper discouraging things in your ear. Answer him with words of Scripture--like Jesus did (Matt 4).

Nurture your prayer life. This is where the battle is won.

Trust God. Let resentment go. Forgive your enemies (and your friends). Accept adversity cheerfully. Don't play God!

How can a child of the King have a sour face? Live royally. It's your birthright.

In His Joy,

Jill Briscoe
