• “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary.

It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon
