SUFFERING AND SATISFACTION

YOU WILL FIND THESE TWO BELONG TOGETHER--SUFFERING AND SATISFACTION. SUFFERING ALWAYS PRECEEDS SATISFACTION.

TOO MANY FOLK ARE TRYING TO TAKE A SHORT CUT TO HAPPINESS BY ATTEMPTING TO AVOID ALL THE TRYING EXPERIENCES. THERE IS NO SHORT ROUTE TO SATISFACTION.

EVEN GOD DID NOT GO THAT WAY. HE COULD HAVE AVOIDED THE CROSS AND ACCEPTED THE CROWN, THAT WAS SATAN'S SUGGESTION. SUFFERING COMES BEFORE SATISFACTION ALWAYS.

PHRASEOLOGY BEARS VARIOUS EXPRESSIONS: THROUGH TRIAL TO TRIUMPH -- SUNSHINE COMES AFTER THE CLOUDS-- LIGHT FOLLOWS DARKNESS -- FLOWERS COME AFTER THE RAIN CLOUDS. THAT SEEMS TO BE GOD'S WAY OF DOING THINGS.

SINCE IT IS HIS METHOD, THEN IT IS THE VERY BEST WAY. PERHAPS YOU ARE SITTING IN THE SHADOW OF LIFE TODAY, TRIALS CONFRONT YOU, PROBLEMS OVERWHELM YOU, THE FIREY FURNACE IS YOUR PRESENT LOT, AND YOU HAVE TASTED THE BITTER WITHOUT THE SWEET, THEN LET ME ENCOURAGE YOUR HEART AND FORTIFY YOUR FAITH BY SAYING THAT YOU ARE ON THE SAME PATHWAY THAT GOD FOLLOWED, AND THAT IT LEADS AT LAST TO LIGHT IF YOU WALK WITH HIM --"WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A NIGHT, BUT JOY COMES IN THE MORNING."
