"Now God hath taken this away from me, now if God will be pleased to make up the enjoyment of Himself another way; that is, will call me to honor him by suffering, and if I may do God as much service now in my way of suffering, that is, to show forth the grace of His Spirit in the way of my suffering, as I did in my way of prosperity, I have as much of God as I had before; if I may be led to God in my low condition, as much as I was in my prosperous condition, I have as much comfort and contentment as I had before."
