The following quote is from "A Joy in All Trials," a Sermon (No. 1704) Delivered on the Lord's Day Morning, February 4th, 1883, by C.H. Spurgeon, at the Metropolitan Tavernacle, Newington , England - and excerpted by Nancy Guthrie in Be Still, My Soul pages 103-104
Which is not to say that we sail through trials serenely and without flinching. We respond to them in human ways - grief, fear, flight, worry, concern, compassion, confusion... We respond in ways that portray (or betray) our personality and our heart. We respond in ways unknown to us because our normal selves have been taken over by adrenalin. But at the core we hope to find that our abiding trust lies in God who is sovereign over all things. That at the core our hope, confidence and security is found in Jesus Christ and nothing else. And if that is what we find then we are deeply blessed, no matter what.
