True Contentment

“True contentment requires a divine principle within, and a divine assistance from above.  …The understanding is enlightened so fancy and imaginations do not carry it away. Thus the heart is more quiet. Agitations of the mind are founded in the power of fancy. Fancy perceives things wrong, which causes us to fret. Grace sets up sound judgment of things. An enlightened mind promotes a submissive heart.”  –Thomas Jacombe from “Voices from the Past”  Volume 2, p. 284, edited by Richard Rushing (Banner of Truth)  


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.
