Trouble outwardly may appear painful or even destructive, but inwardly its spiritual work produces blessings. God sees the future and knows the final results. There are many blessings we will never receive until we are ready to pay the price of pain, for the path of suffering is sometimes the only way to reach them. – Paraphrased from Steams in the Desert.
