The Ministry of Sorrow | Tim Challies

“We should not long to suffer, but we should be willing to. We should not desire loss, but we should consent to bow the head, to bow the heart, to bow the knee, and to be a blessing to God’s people in whatever sorrows God ordains for us. When we surrender ourselves to God, we are meant to hold nothing back, but to give ourselves entirely to him, entirely to his hand, entirely to whatever he calls us to, even if it hurts.”

“The church would be impoverished if Joni Eareckson Tada was not a member of it. Christian history would be lacking if it did not involve the accounts of Marie Durand and Corrie Ten Boom. We would be missing out on much encouragement if its ranks did not include Amy Carmichael…”
