The Nearest Book

1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next four sentences on your blog (or here in the comments section if you don't have a blog) along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig around for that "cool" or "intellectual" book on your shelves. (I know you were thinking about it.) Just pick up whatever is closest.

The book closet to me is a dictionary and World Atlas.....both to boring for this.
So I choose the next nearest book LOL!

Yet she desires the warm south wind of comfort, too, the smiles of divine love, the joy of the Redeemer's presence; these are often mightily effectual to arouse our sluggish life. She desires either one or the other, or both; so that she may but be able to delight her Beloved with the spices of her garden. She cannot endure to be unprofitable, nor can we. How cheering a thought that Jesus can find comfort in our poor feeble graces. Can it be?

So.... who is this?

Below is where I got this idea.

P.S. I just realized I did page 122....oops!

Ok, it's driving me crazy... what book is this?!?! Lol!

I've got it! I'll finish the entry...

It seems far too good to be true. Well may we court trial or even death itself if we shall thereby be aided to make glad Immanuel's heart. O that our heart were crushed to atoms if only by such bruising our sweet Lord Jesus could be glorified. Graces unexercised are as sweet perfumes slumbering in the cups of the flowers: the wisdom of the great Husbandman overrules diverse and opposite causes to produce the one desired result, and makes both affliction and consolation draw forth the grateful odours of faith, love, patience, hope, resignation, joy, and the other fair flowers of the garden. May we know by sweet experience, what this means.

Grace and peace! :)

Your good Heather! You must be a big Spurgeon fan to have gotten that. I really enjoy him and I love the old language too!
I enjoy my Morning and is always so provoking.

No, I'm not. I googled it. ;)

Although, I was delighted to see that it was Spurgeon! I do love his books.
