Puritan Reading Challenge Update

My copy of The Bruised Reed is on its way, but hasn't arrived yet, so I started A Lifting up for the Downcast. I've been underlining much, but wanted to post this quote from chapter (sermon) two.

So long as man has encouragement elsewhere, he does not encourage himself in the Lord his God. This being man's nature, and God having a design of love upon His own children, He permits a damp and discouragement to pass upon all their comforts: their peace to be interrupted, their hearts disquieted, and their souls discouraged, that so they may encourage themselves in God alone.
