Teach me contentment, Lord, whate'er my lot,
keeping my eyes on You in trust,
knowing Your love is true, Your way is just.

Teach me discontentment, Lord, with what I am;
daily striving, growing daily nearer,
finding You are daily cloer, dearer.

Contented, Lord, yet discontented make me,
both together working, blending
all in Your own glory ending.
- Ruth Graham, Sitting by My Laughing Fire


In a post last month I mentioned Ruth Graham's book, Sitting by My Laughing Fire. This is one of my favorites...so far!
