When you Walk Along the Way

Just a place to share my thoughts as I seek to serve my husband, raise my children and Glorify my God!

The depth that is Spurgeon September 24, 2008

Sometimes we run across statements, sermons and quotes that hit us in our souls. This is an excerpt of an excerpt of a sermon preached by CH Spurgeon when he was only 20 years old. I have taken it from the book Knowing God by JI Packer. Although I am usually more than willing to add my own take on things I read, this needs no other words.. In fact I would only lessen it if I even were to try.

“Oh there is in Contemplating Christ, a balm for every wound; in musing on the Father, there is a quietus for every grief; and in the influence of the Holy Ghost, there is a balsam for every sore. Would you lose your sorrow? Would you drown your cares? Then go, plunge yourself in the Godhead’s deepest sea; be lost in its immensity; and you shall come forth as from a couch of rest, refreshed and invigorated. I know nothing which can so comfort the soul; so calm the swelling billows of sorrow and grief; so speak winds to a trial, as a devout musing upon the subject of the Godhead.”

Enough said…..
