_Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer:… ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life_.–REV. ii. 10.

Then, O my soul, be ne’er afraid, On Him who thee and all things made Do thou all calmly rest; Whate’er may come, where’er we go, Our Father in the heavens must know In all things what is best.
PAUL FLEMMING.
Guide me, O Lord, in all the changes and varieties of the world; that in all things that shall happen, I may have an evenness and tranquillity of spirit; that my soul may be wholly resigned to Thy divinest will and pleasure, never murmuring at Thy gentle chastisements and fatherly correction. Amen.
JEREMY TAYLOR.
Thou art never at any time nearer to God than when under tribulation; which He permits for the purification and beautifying of thy soul.
M. DE MOLINOS.
Prize inward exercises, griefs, and troubles; and let faith and patience have their perfect work in them.
I. PENINGTON.

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon
