Tokens of God’s love!
(Letters of John Newton)
Trials no less than comforts–are the tokens of God’s love! All is regulated by infinite wisdom. You will find cause to praise Him even for the severe afflictions.
Cisterns must be broken–but the fountain of living waters is always full and always flowing!
Gourds must wither–but the tree of life has shade and fruit sufficient for us all, and at all times!
“Trials make the promise sweet,
Trials give new life to prayer;
Trials bring me to His feet,
Lay me low and keep me there!”
