Principles and Practices - July 29

God Turns Sorrow Into Joy

In Him we recognize all things, see all the beauties of nature and of grace, and drink at the ever-flowing spring of His wisdom without being surfeited.

Thus we know neither satiety nor ennui.

And even if He sends us sorrows, we take them as coming from Him, and kiss the hand that chastises us.

The children of God possess and govern their souls in Christian patience, and the sting of satiety cannot wound them.
