You Have Strong Faith And Assurance, Yet - William Bridge

As a man may have strong faith with assurance, and yet some doubts and fears may be left in the soul still; so a man may have strong faith and assurance, yet for a long time may be deprived of the feeling of it.


And therefore, whereas the spouse in the Song of Songs in one place says, "I am my Beloved's, and my Beloved is mine," in another place she says, "I sought him whom my soul loveth, and I found him not: I opened to my beloved, and he was gone, and my soul failed; I called and he answered not."
