Light and Momentary

"When we get to heaven...
...our trials will then seem light and momentary afflictions.

Let us go on boldly; if the night be never so dark,
the morning cometh, which is more than they can say
who are shut up in the darkness of hell.
Do you know what it is thus to live on the future --
to live on expectation -- to antedate heaven?


Happy believer, to have so sure, so comforting a hope.
It may be all dark now, but it will soon be light;
it may be all trial now, but it will soon be all happiness.
What matters it though 'weeping may endure for a night,'
when 'joy cometh in the morning?' "

Quoted from Spurgeon's Morning and Evening ~
May 13th morning reading.

May the Lord seal these precious thoughts to our hearts and lives.
He is so very, very good and truly does all things well.
How wonderful it is to rest our souls in Him.

Happy Friday!
With Love, Camille
