At this very moment I am praying for someone that I love. Her trial has been a long one. She is tiered, weak, and worn. I do not believe that it is by accident that I came upon this quote by Richard Sibbes, an old English Puritan Preacher. Maybe you are weary too. Take heart. God has a purpose for your suffering and He will bring you out.
“Suffering brings discouragements, because of our impatience. ‘Alas!’ We lament, ‘I shall never get through such a trial.’ But if God brings us into the trial he will be with us in the trial and at length bring us out, more refined. We shall lose nothing but dross (Zechariah 13:9). From our own strength we cannot bear the least trouble, but by the Spirit’s assistance we can bear the greatest.”
Richard Sibbes, “The Bruised Reed”
