“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me! But He said to me–My grace is sufficient for you—for My power is made perfect in your weakness!”
We are not spared the suffering–but in the suffering we are brought nearer to God, and receive more of His grace.
The sorrow is not taken away–but is changed to joy.
Our ignorant prayers are taken into the hands of the great Intercessor, and are answered in ways far wiser than our thought!
Instead of earthly trifles–heavenly riches!
Instead of things which our poor wisdom sought–things God’s infinite wisdom chose for us!
Instead of pleasure for a day–gain for eternity!
