"Learn to believe Christ better than His strokes; Himself and His promises better than His glooms...'For we know that all things work together for good to them that God', ergo, shipwreck, losses, etc., work together for the good of them that love God: hence I infer, that losses, disappointments, ill tongues, loss of friends, houses, or country, are God's workmen, set on work, to work out good to you, out of everything that befalleth you."- Samuel Rutherford
