Weary Mariner on Life’s Tempestuous Ocean

God’s afflictions are sent in mercy and directed by love. They are designed to unite us more closely to the Savior, to wean us from earth, to elevate our affections to that blessed world where there shall be no more pain. Every breeze of earthly sorrow is only wafting us to those high and heavenly abodes, where temporal ills are forever unknown.

Weary mariner on life’s tempestuous ocean, when afflictions cloud your sky, and billows roar around you, trust in the Savior’s confiding love, knowing that, like the Captain of our salvation, you must also be made perfect through suffering; and that these light and momentary afflictions are working for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory!
