Let Out By God

“Affliction is compared to a prison, where the poor afflicted  creature is, as it were, confined, committed by God, and must not break prison, come out by the window, but the door. When we are let out by God upon submission and supplication, urging the satisfaction of Christ; as we are sent thither by God’s authority, so we come out by God’s love.”  –Thomas Manton, Psalm 119, Vol. 1, p. 449

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.
