I often quote Martyn Lloyd-Jones, a London pastor who was Reformed and believed in applying the Bible to everyday experiences.  He used to read the Puritans.  I’m sure he must have read the following quote from Samuel Rutherford, a Scottish Puritan.  I hope it helps you see our Father’s smile of understanding and compassion on whatever your circumstances are right now . (See blog for Jan. 5, 2010.)

“I pray you learn to be worthy of his pains who correcteth; and let him wring, and be ye washed; for he hath a Father’s heart, and a Father’s hand, who is training you up, and making you meet for the high hall.”
