The Sin Of Refusing God's Comfort by Jesse Hendley

Jesse M. Hendley
Psalm 77:2

In Psalm 77 we read these words, "My soul refused to
be comforted."

I have a letter here that I want to read to you. "Dear
Brother Hendley, I enjoy your program so much. I love
the Lord with all my heart. I have learned how to
