Robert Leighton said, "Adversity is the diamond dust heaven polishes its jewels with." The greatest burdens of life often result in the greatest blessings of life. What we often think will break us is oftentimes the very thing that builds us. God has on many occasions dug the wells of joy with the spade of sorrow. As Shakespeare said, "Sweet are the uses of adversity." God use of adversity always has sweet results.
