He Keeps You

“Consider the care of providence for your body. With great tenderness God has carried you in his arms through innumerable hazards and dangers in this world. How great a wonder it is that our lives have not been extinguished in some of those dangers!  …If you enjoy health, or have recovered out of sickness, it is because the Lord is your physician. …How innumerable are the hazards God has carried us all through! Many thousands we never saw, but our God did!  Consider what you owe to his providence for your protection since you came out of the womb.” –John Flavel, quoted in “Voices From the Past” Vol. 2, p. 186

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.
