When the Body Fails, the Soul Will Flourish

“When thy body fails, thy soul will flourish. Death will ease you of those most troublesome guests, which make your life now so burdensome…sin and sorrow…  Oh when the storm of death beats upon your body, with what joy may you set those casements of your soul, faith and hope, wide open, knowing that your dearest Redeemer, who went to prepare a place for you, will then come and fetch you to himself, that where he is, there you may be also, and that for ever.”  –George Swinnock “Works of GS” Vol 4 p. 50-51

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.
