In one of our recent articles, Joni, paraplegic for 50 years quoted an English author, William Law.
Dn his quote, the XNUMXth century Christian writer evokes a path of suffering, similar to the one that Joni and so many others have to cross because of illness, disability, or mourning ... A path that according to him, we leads to "spiritual prosperity". The author thus joins the thought of Paul in the Epistle to the Corinthians, "I delight in weaknesses, in outrages, in calamities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ, for, when I am weak, it is then that I am strong ”.
“Receive all inner and outer troubles, all disappointments, all trials, all discomforts, all darkness and desolation with open arms, as a blessed opportunity ... to die and enter into fuller fellowship with your Savior. . Don't look at any external or foreign problem from another perspective. Dismiss any further thought on this subject. And you will find that the day of your distress will become the blessed day of your spiritual prosperity. "
