Amid Darkness Cheerfulness Prevails

“So also in the farewell discourse; it abounds with apples of gold. The sky is dark enough. Terrible mental trials and frightful physical sufferings hang over our blessed Lord. The disciples are to be parted from Him who has been their light and joy. They are to be plunged into all the troubles and terrors of a conflict with the world and the devil. Yet amid all this darkness, cheerfulness prevails. ‘Let not your heart be troubled’ is the key-note of the whole. It is full of reassuring and comforting words.” ” –William Blaikie “The Public Ministry of Christ” p. 149-150

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
