As I read this morning’s story, I thought, “how sad”. It was the story of Mrs. Charles H Spurgeon, who suffered greatly for more than twenty five years.
Then as I read on, I was encouraged by her. She found the old oak log that had cold, hard unfeeling and never singing any melodious sounds, were singing like a robin. The oak was singing in the fire.
“Yes, singing in the fire! God helping us, sometimes using the only way He can to get harmony from our hard and apathetic hearts. Then let the furnace be ‘heated seven times hotter than usual’ [Daniel 3:19].”
