The Sweet Dropper: Delivered Not from, but by Trouble

Though God deliver not out of trouble, yet he delivers from the ill in trouble, from despair in trouble, by supporting the spirit. Nay, he delivers by trouble, for he sanctifies the trouble to cure the soul, and by less troubles he delivers from greater.  – Richard Sibbes, Divine Meditations and Holy Contemplations
