Well Written Wednesdays: it is mine

Reading by Candlelight by Matheius Stom
"Fly to the Word of God, then, in every sorrow! You will know more of the mind and heart of God than you, perhaps, ever learned in all the schools before. Draw, then, O child of sorrow, your consolation from God’s Word.

"Oh, clasp this precious Word of comfort to your sorrowful heart, and exclaim, 'It is mine! The Jesus of whom it speaks is mine, the salvation it reveals is mine, the promises it contains are mine, the heaven it unveils is mine, and all the consolation, comfort, and sympathy which wells up from these hidden springs, is mine.'"

-Octavius Winslow in The Precious Things of God
