"A broken heart and God's will done would be better than that God's will should be avoided."
~R. H. Benson
If I truly believe that nothing happens outside of the providence of God, and that even in the sorrows and trials of life God is working out a great good, then how can hope and confident assurance in God escape me? What sweet and holy joy can be found in the midst of pain and suffering? (See tomorrow's Grace Line for a poetic expression of this sentiment.)
