A Voice from the Past - Spurgeon

It is ours to submit to deprivations with patience, seeing the cold is his cold. That which God sends, whether it be heat or cold, no man can defy with impunity, but he is happy who bows before it with child-like submission. When we cannot stand before God we will gladly bow at his feet, or nestle under his wings.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-1892, The Treasury of David, Psalm 147:17 (Henderickson Publishers,Volume 3, p. 419)

  1. My motto is to give thanks in (not for) all things. That said, I find it harder to give thanks in some things than in others.
