Trials and afflictions…

Spurgeon gems on trials and afflictions

(Charles Spurgeon)

None of us can come to the highest maturity without enduring the summer heat of trials

Paul, who had more to suffer than we have, called his afflictions light, and yet we often consider ours to be heavy. Surely something must be amiss with the weights!

We never have yet experienced a trouble which might not have been worse.

Perhaps we are tried just now, in order to drive us nearer to Jesus.
Blessed be any wind that blows us into the port of our Savior’s love!

Troubled one, you may go to your heavenly Father about anything, about everything.
Our place of comfort is the bosom of the Savior.

Great hearts can only be made by great troubles.
Mighty prayer has often been produced by mighty trial.

Blessed sickness, which make us seek the beloved Physician.
