“There is sometimes a seeming contradiction between his promises and his providences, word and works: his voice is sweet like Jacob’s, but his hands rough like Esau’s. Go into the sanctuary, and God will help you to reconcile things (Ps. 73:16-17): otherwise, the difficulty will be too hard for you. …His promise is the light side, his providence is the dark side, of the cloud: ‘Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known’ (Ps. 77:19. We cannot trace him, nor find out the reason of everything which God doth; only in the general, that ‘he hath done all things well’ (Mark 7:17) nay, what is best.” –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119- vol. 2” p. 117 (v. 71)
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.
