Training Ground

"Faith told Moses that affliction and suffering were not real evils.
They were the school of God,
in which He trains the children of grace for glory;

the medicines which are needful to purify our corrupt wills;
the furnace which must burn away our dross;
the knife which must cut the ties that bind us to the world."

Quoted from "Holiness" by J. C. Ryle page 138.

With Love,

Training can be a difficult thing to endure. Without faith what would we do?!!! So glad God sustains us when we look to Him.
