 The sweetest mercies of God! -hawker


[b]The sweetest mercies of God![/b]

(Robert Hawker, "Zion's Pilgrim" 1827)

All afflictions which tend to . . .
bring the soul to God,
keep up a life of communion with the Redeemer,
make us sensible of the gracious influence of the Holy Spirit,
spiritualize our affections,
wean our hearts from a world from which we must soon part,
and promote a more intimate acquaintance with that world in
which we are shortly forever to dwell--are undeserving the name
of afflictions! They are among the sweetest mercies of God!

God removes earthly comforts--in order to make room for heavenly
delights. He empties the soul of all creature-comforts--that He may
fill it with Creator-mercies. We should embrace our afflictions, as
affording the choicest proofs of divine love.

He is so very faithful. He who created all comforts. He who knows the True meaning of delight. He who is The Light!
