"Mountains, when in darkness hidden, are as real as in day, and God's love is as true to you now as it was in your brightest moments ... You will yet climb Jacob's ladder with the angels and behold Him who sits at the top of it--your covenant God. You will yet, amidst the splendors of eternity, forget the trials of time or only remember them to bless the God who led you through them and works your lasting good by them. Come, sing in the midst of tribulation. Rejoice even while passing through the furnace. Make the wilderness blossom like the rose! Cause the desert to ring with your exulting joys, for these light afflictions will soon be over, and then, forever with the Lord, your bliss shall never wane."

--C.H. Spurgeon
