Have We Thanked God for Our Thorns?

"George Mattheson, the well-known blind preacher of Scotland, now with The Lord, said: 'My God, I have never thanked Thee for my thorn! I have thanked Thee a thousand times for my rose, but never once for my thorn; I have been looking forward to a world where I shall get my compensation for my cross, but I have never thought of my cross as itself a present glory. Teach me the glory of my cross; teach me the value of my thorn. Show me that I have climbed to Thee by the path of pain. Show me that my tears have made my rainbow.'"

"... and i wait." Psalm 5:3 (GWT)
