“God is slow to anger (Nahum 1:3). When Mercy comes into the world she drives winged steeds; the axles of her chariot-wheels are glowing hot with speed; but when Wrath comes, it walks with tardy footsteps; it is not in haste to slay, it is not swift to condemn. God’s rod of mercy is ever in his hands outstretched; God’s sword of justice is in its scabbard: not rusted in it–it can be easily withdrawn–but held there by that hand that presses it back into its sheath, crying, ‘Sleep, O sword, sleep; for I will have mercy upon sinners, and will forgive their transgressions.’ ” — Charles H. Spurgeon “Spurgeon’s Sermons” Vol. 3 p. 361
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.
