“Why go I mourning ?” — Ps. 42:9
Can you answer this, believer? Can you find any reason why you art so often mourning instead of rejoicing? Why yield to gloomy anticipations? Who told you that the night would never end in day? Who told you that the winter of your discontent would proceed from frost to frost, from snow and ice, and hail, to deeper snow, and yet more heavy tempest of despair? Do you not know that day follows night, that spring and summer come after winter? Hope thou then! Hope thou ever! for God fails you not.
– C. H. Spurgeon
