• “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

_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.
