Ask Not Deliverance from Your Pains - Brother Lawrence

God sometimes permits bodily diseases to cure the distempers of the soul. Have courage, then; make a virtue of necessity. Ask of God, not deliverance from your pains, but strength to bear resolutely, for the love of Him, all that He should please, and as long as He shall please.


Taken from the book The Practice of the Presence of God

by Brother Lawrence 1614-1691
