Looking unto Jesus and not at our troubles, to count them, to weigh them, to find perhaps certain strange satisfaction in tasting their bitterness. Apart from Jesus trouble does not sanctify -it hardens or crushes. It produces not patience, but rebellion; not sympathy, but selfishness; not hope (Rom. 5:3-5), but despair. Only under the shadow of the cross can we appreciate the true weight of our own troubles and accept them each day from His hand with love, with gratitude and with joy. Only then can we find for ourselves and for others a source of blessing.

AMEN KnowHim!

It's easy to get lost in the dark if we lose sight of the Son.
