Memories of God’s Mercies

“We ought not to be unmindful of the way by which the Lord our God has led us, for if we are we shall lose much.  Some saints have very short memories.  It has been well said that we write our benefits in dust and our injuries in marble, and it is equally true that we generally inscribe our afflictions upon brass, while the records of the deliverances of God are written in water.  It ought not so to be.  If our memories were more tenacious of the merciful visitations of our God, our faith would often be strengthened in times of trial.”  –Charles H. Spurgeon “Sermons” Vol. 10, p. 265

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.
