“You will soon know that your bitterest trials and your sorest pains are sure tokens of His love.  The father corrects because he loves.  In anxious care the physician deeply probes the wounds.  Thus Jesus makes earth hard, that you may long for heaven’s holy rest.  He shows you your self-vileness that you may prize His cleansing blood.  He suffers you to stumble that you may cleave more closely to His side.  He makes the world a blank that you may seek all comfort in Himself.  If He seem to change, it is that you may change.  He hides His face, that you may look towards Him.  He is silent, that you may cry more loudly.  His desertion prevents your desertion.”  Henry Law  (1797-1844)
