Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 179

WORDS OF SYMPATHY

To [Rev. W. J. Mayers].

CLAPHAM, July 25, 1874.

DEAR FRIEND, —

I am deeply grieved by the sad news which has just arrived by telegram. It is unexpected indeed. I pray that your will may run side by side with that of your Lord, and may you even thank Him, “for so it seemed good in Thy sight.” He can see no reason or goodness in the removal because we are quite unable to see afar off, but faith knows that there is both wisdom and love in it, and leaves all to the far seeing Lord. The Comforter will be with you; a deeper experience of trial will prepare you for greater heights of service. Sharp pruning will increase sweet fruit.

With the utmost love,

Your sympathizing friend,

C. H. SPURGEON.
