Desires Other Than God

“…there is enough in God to satisfy.  If our desires run out after other things, they are desires not to be satisfied, but to be mortified.  If we hunger after other contentments, they are like feverish desires, not to be satisfied,  but to be abated in the soul, for he that fills all things, hath enough to fill up our hearts.”  –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119, Vol 1” p. 564

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.
