"It is not the distance of the earth from
the sun, nor the sun's withdrawing itself,
that makes a dark and gloomy day; but the
interposition of clouds and vaporous
exhalations. Neither is thy soul beyond
the reach of the promise, nor does God withdraw
Himself; but the vapours of thy carnal,
unbelieving heart do cloud thee.
-- John Owen (1616-1683), "Works of John Owen,"
