A good reminder...

This was too good not to share. I read it on the GirlTalk blog, but it's from Spurgeon's Morning and Evening {an excellent daily devotional, should you need one}.

Are you struggling? Are you in a trial? Have you forgotten that God is good - all the time, whatever your circumstances? Rejoice and remember that God can be trusted until the very end!

My grace is sufficient for thee." 2 Corinthians 12:9

"God's grace is illustrated and magnified in the poverty and trials of believers. Saints bear up under every discouragement, believing that all things work together for their good, and that out of apparent evils a real blessing shall ultimately spring--that their God will either work a deliverance for them speedily or most assuredly support them in the trouble, as long as He is pleased to keep them in it....He who would glorify his God must set his account upon meeting with many trials. No man can be illustrious before the Lord unless his conflicts be many. If then, yours be a much-tried path, rejoice in it, because you will the better show forth the all-sufficient grace of God. As for His failing you, never dream of it--hate the thought. The God who has been sufficient until now, should be trusted to the end." Charles Spurgeon, Morning & Evening, March 4, morning.
