Affliction: Overruled to Promote Joy
Our afflictions are like weights, and have a tendency to bow us to the dust, but there is a way of arranging weights by means of wheels and pulleys, so that they will even lift us up. Grace, by its matchless art, has often turned the heaviest of our trials into occasions for heavenly joy.'We glory in tribulations also.' We gather honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock.
