First exaltations

Though my exercises and troubles were very great, yet they were not so continual that I had some intermissions, and was sometimes brought into such a heavenly joy that I thought I had been in Abraham's bosom. As I cannot declare the misery I was in it was so great and heavy upon me, so neither can I set forth the mercies of God unto me in all my misery. Oh! the everlasting love of God to my soul when I was in great distress; when my troubles and torments were great then was his love exceedingly great.
