  • God, many times answers our prayers not by bringing down His will to ours, but lifting us up to Himself. We grow strong so as to need no longer cry for relief. We can bear the heavy load without asking to have it lightened. We can keep the sorrow now and endure it. We can go on in quiet peace without the new blessing which we thought so necessary. We have not been saved from the battle we shrank so from entering, but we have sought and have gained the victory.
    (J.R. Miller)

    (Lord Byron)

    (Martin Luther)

  • We say sorrow, disaster and calamity. God says chastening and it sounds sweet to him though it is a discord to our ears. Don't faint when you are rebuked and don't despise the chastening of the Lord. "In your patience possess your souls."
    (Oswald Chambers)

  • If I had a formula for bypassing trouble, I would not pass it round. Trouble creates a capacity to handle. I don't embrace trouble. That’s as bad as treating it as an enemy. But I do say meet it as a friend, for you'll see a lot of it and had better be on speaking terms with it.
    (Oliver Wendell Holmes)

  • When Providence, for secret ends,

    Corroding cares, or sharp affliction sends;

    We must conclude it best it should be so,

    And not desponding or impatient grow.

  • When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
    (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

  • Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.
    (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
