Rejoice Exceedingly

“As it is a privilege, so it is a duty to be glad, to rejoice, yea, exceedingly to rejoice, [Psalm 68:3].  He, who knows and loves and receives little, may rejoice little.  But surely he, who has experienced the saving grace of God, ought not to be tame and torpid in his exultations. If we duly rejoiced in God, we should not so often seek a portion here below.  When the heart is full of joy in God, the trifles and vanities of time lose their enchantments.”  –William S. Plumer “Psalms” p. 669

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.
