Weaning Me from the World

lordgavemestrengthRandy Alcorn shares in 90 Days of God’s Goodness a quote from J.C. Ryle “There is nothing which shows our ignorance so much as our impatience under trouble. We forget that every cross is a message from God, and intended to do us good in the end. Trials are intended to make us think – to wean us from the world – to send us to the Bible – to drive us to our knees. Health is a good thing but sickness is far better if it leads us to God. Prosperity is a great mercy; but adversity is a greater one if it brings us to Christ. Anything, anything is better than living in carelessness and dying in sin.”

If you’re anything like me, then you too struggle under the heavy weight of hardships, of sorrow, of evil, of suffering that either touches us directly (or indirectly).

I’m determined to see my trials through the lens of eternity.

How about you?
