一些關於苦難和屬靈低潮的屬靈名句

J.C. Ryle: “Spiritual darkness comes on horseback, and goes away on foot. It is upon us before we know that it is coming. It leaves us slowly, gradually, and not till after many days.”

C.S. Lewis: “Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.”

Matthew Henry: “Discontent is a sin that is its own punishment and makes men torment themselves; it makes the spirit sad, the body sick, and all the enjoyments sour; it is the heaviness of the heart and the rottenness of the bones. It is a sin that is its own parent. It arises not from the condition, but from the mind. As we find Paul contented in a prison, so Ahab discontent in a palace.” Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible: http://www.ccel.org/h/henry/mhc2/MHC11021.HTM

Francis Schaeffer: “Many times I say, ‘I can't go up the hill once more. I can't do it again.’ And what is God's answer? Well, first it is important to know that God doesn't scold a man when his tiredness comes from his battles and his tears from compassion.” Death in the City (Downers Grove, InterVarsity Press: 1969), 69.

“Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to the difficulties they have suffered” (C.H. Spurgeon).

“Life is a mingled yarn, good and ill together” (Shakespeare).

“Those who have endured the stinging experiences are the choicest people God can use.” “Who God would use greatly, He will hurt deeply” (A. W. Tozer).

“Participate joyfully in the sorrows of life.”

“Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful” (Annette Funichello-former “Mouseketeer” suffering with debilitating MS).

“Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such” (Henry Miller).

“You who perceive yourself as weak and frail, with futile hopes and devastated dreams, born but to die, to weep and suffer pain, hear this: all power is given unto you in earth and heaven. There is nothing you cannot do. The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt” (Thomas Merton).

“To give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labor and not ask for any reward save that of knowing that we do Thy will” (St Ignatius Loyola).

“Sorrows are sickly things and die, while the joys are strong divine children and shall live forever” (George MacDonald).

“None of us is only the sum of our wounds” (Kimberly C. Patton, p. 8, A Sorrowful Joy).
