“Nothing can content the desires of the soul but God himself: other things may busy us, and vex us, but cannot satisfy us: ‘All is vanity and vexation of spirit.’ If a man would make a critical search as Solomon did; he set himself to see what pleasures and honours would do to content the heart of man, and what riches and learning would do; he had a large estate and heart, and so was in a capacity to try all things, to see if he could extract satisfaction from them; yet he concludes, ‘All is vanity and vexation of spirit.’ Whosoever will follow this course, will come home with disappointment. But in this portion there is contentment: we need no more but God, and there is nothing besides him worth our desire.” –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119, Vol. 1” p. 564
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.
