Winter-faith

“No flowers wear so lovely a blue as those which grow at the foot of the frozen glacier; no stars gleam so brightly as those which glisten in the polar sky; no water tastes so sweet as that which springs amid the desert sand; and no faith is so precious as that which lives and triumphs in adversity. Tried faith brings experience. You could not have believed your own weakness had you not been compelled to pass through the rivers; and you would never have known God’s strength had you not been supported amid the water-floods. Faith increases in solidity, assurance, and intensity, the more it is exercised with tribulation. Faith is precious, and its trial is precious too.”

-Charles Spurgeon

  1. I read this 3 times and each time I loved it more. Something similar but not nearly as beautiful has been rattling around in my head lately.

    p.s. You are loved and thought of and prayed for.

  2. Wow sis! Thanks for sharing this Charles Spurgeon piece. Very encouraging! God be with you! As I am encouraged I remember you and your girls in prayer.
