"Happy is the man whom God correcteth." (Job 5:17)
I read the following quote on a friend's blog a little while ago. It really encouraged me, and I hope you, too, will find a blessing in it!
Happy, because the correction is designed to bring him into paths of blessedness and peace.
Happy, because there is no unnecessary severity in it.
Happy, because the chastisement is not so much against us, as against our most cruel enemies—our sins.
Happy, because we have abundant words of consolation.
Happy, because whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth.
Happy, because our light affliction is but for a moment.
