Concealed Treasures

From Maureen Stohlmeyer’s blog, a few words about her blog: “Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.”

Still They Speak

“If we could only understand that there is as much wisdom in some of God’s deep afflictions as there is in the creation of the world. God afflicts His people artistically.  His is never a random blow. Only marvelous skill lies in the Lord’s chastening. Thus we are told, ‘Do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor detest His correction.’ (Prov. 3:11)  Treasures are concealed in the great depths. We do not receive or even perceive the present and immediate benefit of some of our afflictions. Affliction in our youth may be intended for the ripening of our old age. Today’s affliction may have no meaning for today; it may be designed for circumstances fifty years ahead.”  –Charles H. Spurgeon “Beside Still Waters” p. 113
