Type

Those who struggle with the loneliness of dark days or the isolating pain of chronic illness may find gentle solace in the the thoughts of this dear brother in Christ.

Solitude in Suffering

“As I sit here in pain, without a single token of sympathy from the human race, I am profoundly grateful to God for my precious Savior. That Christ came to save me, reconciles me to the numerous and depressing afflictions of my life. Amid them all, my world is strictly within myself, and its openings look out on immortality. Amid the vexations and disquieting scenes of my earthly suffering, I forget not the song of my pilgrimage, “I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.” This thought illumes the darkness without and hallows all within. – From Chapter 5
