Humiliation Our Delight

“Do we choose that God should be all and that we ourselves should be nothing? Do we love that God should possess the throne and sway the scepter in our hearts? Do we long to be more humbled and abased before God? Is a humiliation and contrition our delight? If so, we may doubtless with humillity rejoice in it, that God has chosen us from all eternity and has called us out of darkness into marvelous light.” –Jonathan Edwards “The Blessing of God” p. 82

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.
