"If you and I have to pass through the furnace of affliction or sorrow, of losses or failure, then let us submit ourselves to the hand of God. Let us not question either His mercy or His goodness. We must often endure the chisel of affliction, as God carves us into His image. We desire to be godlike in character. Remember that God only afflicts for our good. Like the surgeon, God does not hurt willingly - but only of necessity.
In our times of trouble, He would have us run into His arms and tell Him all our troubles, our questionings, our heartaches!"
