Good Soldiers Are Not Made In Parlors

“To what great straits even good men are often brought. The sorrows of death and of hell, the floods of ungodly men and the snares of death surround and beset them. In this way they are disciplined and made courageous. Good soldiers are not made in parlors. The fearful strife of the battle-field is necessary to show who is calm and valorous. It is no small mercy that God lets us triumph in many a conflict before the last great battle is fought.” –William S. Plumer “Psalms” p. 248

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.
