I am having a busy day here, but I encourage you to read Matthew Blair's summary on chapter 9 of this excellent book by Octavius Winslow, Help Heavenward (read it here.)
|Help Heavenward Chapter 9|
And if you have time please read an excellent and very important post by Diane at Theology for Girls, entitled Discernment and the Elect Lady.
|Theology for Girls|
Lastly a quote from one of my dearest friends, Elizabeth,
"It's common to want a quick fix, a cure for getting your troubled soul out of hock... But there's no greater balm for sin than the cross of Christ, where does flow a bloody tide of forgiveness; removing wrath and pain, filling with peace and joy."
Have a most blessed day dear friends,
