Anne Dutton's Letters on Spiritual Subjects
By Anne Dutton (1692-1765)
"Here is a feast for souls who desire to feed on Christ; to have His glories opened out before them, and the riches of divine grace in all their fullness and freeness set forth. Here, too, is food for the 'lambs of the flock,' comfort for the sorrowing, and encouragement for the weak and trembling ones. There is in these letters a union of doctrinal, experimental, and practical teaching, rarely found in combination."
His sovereign love
The furnace of affliction
Your Father's love-tokens!
Weeping may endure for a night
Worth infinitely more than millions of worlds!
Then farewell forever!
Our light and momentary troubles
When we are in the furnace
The Lord can work by whom He will.
Oh, infinite love!-bottomless, boundless, endless love!
Oh, the heights, depths, lengths, and breadths of grace!
A spiritual appetite
The most weak and unfit instruments
