Deepest Afflictions, Highest Joys

“Believe that the deepest afflictions are always neighbors to the highest joys.  The greatest possible privileges lie close to the darkest trials.  The more bitter your sorrow, the louder your song at the end.  There is a reason, and that reason faith may discover and experience may live on.  

Our afflictions are the highway that leads us closer to God. Our troubles are a fiery chariot to bring us to God.  Our afflictions, wave upon wave, will drive our souls nearer heaven.  It is a blessed thing when God’s judgments bring us closer to Him.”  –Charles H. Spurgeon “Beside the Still Waters” p. 16

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
