_Blessed is the man whom Thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of Thy law_.–PS. xciv
Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.–JER. x. 19.

Hold in thy murmurs, heaven arraigning! The patient see God’s loving face; Who bear their burdens uncomplaining, ‘Tis they that win the Father’s grace.
ANON.
Do not run to this and that for comfort when you are in trouble, but bear it. Be uncomfortably quiet–be uneasily silent–be patiently unhappy.
J.P. GREAVES.
Hard words will vex, unkindness will pierce; neglect will wound; threatened evils will make the soul quiver; sharp pain or weariness will rack the body, or make it restless. But what says the Psalmist? “When my heart is vexed, I will complain.” To whom? Not of God, but to God.
E.B. PUSEY.
Surely, I have thought, I do not want to have a grief which would not be a grief. I feel that I shall be able to take up my cross in a religious spirit soon, and then it will be all right.
JAMES HINTON.

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NKJV)
