The Man Who Has Seen Misery

I am the man who has seen misery Because of the rod of His wrath. – Lam. 3:1

Hear the words of one intensely mourning.

“To be without afflictions is impossible here below, where man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upward. Not to feel when afflicted, is a stoical and impious. But to sink under troubles is beneath the character of the Christian.” – James Meikle (1730-1799)
