I bear my witness that some of the best things I have ever learned from mortal lips–I have learned from bedridden saints!
There is no greater mercy that I know of on earth than good health–unless it is sickness. Sickness has often been a greater mercy to me than health!
It is often worth while being afflicted, in order to experience the great loving kindness of God which He bestows so abundantly on us in the hour of trouble and perplexity. Yes, God turns our fasts into feasts–and we are glad in the midst of our sorrow!
A whole-hearted consecration,
a child-like confidence,
a deep-toned submission–
these will make us ready for suffering, whatever it may be.
“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.” 1 Peter 1:6

“In Your presence is fullness of joy! At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore!” Psalm 16:11
A million million–what must that be? The human mind cannot grasp the meaning of such vast numbers–yet, when millions of millions of millions of millions of years have passed over the heads of Christ’s saints in glory, this text will not be exhausted!
No, more–not one jot or tittle of it will be exhausted–and throughout eternity it will still be, “pleasures forevermore!”
Ah, my brethren, this prize is worth winning! Eternal life is worth having! And it shall be the portion of every true believer!
“Come, you who are blessed by My Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world!” Matthew 25:34
“And so we will be with the Lord forever!” 1 Thessalonians 4:17
