The Gaining of Strength
Hardship burns and then scars all souls.
A pained body or soul will never permit itself to be ignored.
The body or soul's voice screams, make rest and relief your sole aim - no matter what the cost.
While satan presents you with forbidden fruit he steals the gift that you have been given. He gives an apple and steals paradise. ~ Bernard of Clairvaux
It is at this point the persistent temptation to seek easy (quick) comfort through sin becomes so troubling.
Send your heart to heaven then your feet and eyes will surely follow.
You can be sure:
the destination is worth the difficulty of the journey.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. (Revelation 21:4)
