In times of affliction we commonly meet with the sweetest experiences of the love of God

I never knew what it was for God to stand by me at all turns… as I have found him since I came in hither (in prison)…In times of affliction we commonly meet with the sweetest experiences of the love of God . . . . Jesus Christ was never more real and apparent than now.
