A Blessed Occasion

“Receive every inward and outward trouble, every disappointment, every darkness and desolation with both your hands, as a blessed occasion of dying to self, and entering into a fuller fellowship with your Savior. Look at no inward or outward trouble in any other way; reject every other thought about it; and then every kind of trial and distress will become the blessed day of your prosperity.”

– William Law (1686-1761)
