A Happy and Joyful Consideration

“It is the continuing nature and disposition of the godly to delight to exalt God always; not only after a dangerous illness, or the like. The godly man does this not merely as a required duty, but as a growing desire in his heart. The godly love to have God do as He pleases, as He sees fit. They have learned of God’s character and trust Him. The sovereignty of God is to them a happy and joyful consideration.”  -Notes by Michael Stohlmeyer on “Jonathan Edwards — The Blessing of God” (“Previously Unpublished Sermons of Jonathan Edwards”) p. 73-74

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.
