Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer:… ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
~ Rev 2:10
Guide me, O Lord, in all the changes and varieties of the world; that in all things that shall happen, I may have an evenness and tranquillity of spirit; that my soul may be wholly resigned to Thy divinest will and pleasure, never murmuring at Thy gentle chastisements and fatherly correction. Amen.
~ JEREMY TAYLOR
Then, O my soul, be ne’er afraid,
On Him who thee and all things made
Do thou all calmly rest;
Whate’er may come, where’er we go,
Our Father in the heavens must know
In all things what is best.
~ PAUL FLEMMING
Thou art never at any time nearer to God than when under tribulation; which He permits for the purification and beautifying of thy soul.
~ M. DE MOLINOS
Prize inward exercises, griefs, and troubles; and let faith and patience have their perfect work in them.
~ I. PENINGTON
