Utterly Desperate

“It is only when we are utterly desperate, and feel quite hopeless, that we look to Him and realize our need of the strengthening of the Spirit in the inner man, and pray for it as we have never prayed before. And God answers our prayer, and the Holy Spirit so strengthens us, and works in us, and so moves in us, that we are able ‘to will and to do’, and to prepare the place for the Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts.” –Martyn Lloyd-Jones “The Unsearchable Riches of Christ” (Banner of Truth) p. 180

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.
