We all have those ‘if onlys’ in our lives. Some are low-level niggles, that we putter on without thinking about for the most part. Others are bigger, more serious issues that loom large in the landscapes of our minds.
Jesus claimed that he had come to give us life in all its fullness, but sometimes it just doesn’t seem as if he’s making good on his promise.
In my new book, If Only, which will be hitting the shops on 1 November 2020, I look at this question of how we can find joyful contentment even before our circumstances match up to the vision we have for our lives.
Drawing on encouragements from the Bible and the stories of others, this book helps readers to trust in God’s plan for their lives and enjoy true contentment through a genuine conviction that Jesus is better than even our most keenly-felt hopes and longings for this life.
If that sounds like something you or your friends would find helpful, you can pre-order it now, and be among the first to read it in November.
