Benefits of Affliction — Brings Us Back to God

Therefore, I will soon fence her in with thorns; I will wall her in so that she cannot find her way. Then she will pursue her lovers, but she will not catch them; she will seek them, but she will not find them. Then she will say, “I will go back to my husband, because I was better off then than I am now.”

[Hos 2:6-7 NET]

Long unafflicted, undismay’d,

In pleasure’s path secure I stray’d:

Thou madest me feel thy chastening rod,

And straight I turned unto my God.
