Trials Greatly Enlarge the Soul

There is good comfort here. Thank you, Maureen!

Still They Speak

“Trials greatly enlarge the soul. Thus I do not want, in my better mind, to escape great trials, since they involve great graces. If my strength shall be as my days (Deut. 33:25), then let my days be long and dark, for my strength will be mighty, God will be glorified, and I will be blessed. I earnestly urge every tested Christian to dwell on this truth, for it may be a great comfort.

There is love, immortal and unchanging love, in heaven toward you, which will never grow cold. You will be helped. God would sooner cease to be than cease to be faithful. Be of good courage, for today He will strengthen your heart.” –Charles H. Spurgeon “Besides Still Waters” p. 19

  1. Yes, there is comfort here! We always come nearer to our Beloved through trials. We learn that we need Him more than we know and we learn that He is our ever present help and strength in our trials. Though I want to kick against trials, I also want to thank my Beloved for being with me wherever I go, whatever befalls me. He truly knows best and wants what is for our better good, and all for His glory. \o/
