This precious jewel, where can it be located?
Happiness! Where is it to be found?

This precious jewel, where can it be located?

Is it to be obtained in the world, its pleasures and
delights? No! the Christian will answer it cannot!

Happiness, if there be such a thing in this world,
can only be obtained from Jesus. In His bosom
alone can we find repose.

I am persuaded that the more the believer has
of sanctified sorrow, tribulation, and affliction in
this dying world, the more he will have of happiness
and glory in the blessed realms above.

I feel now as if death would be a welcome messenger
to my soul, to waft me from this sinful world to
Canaan's joyful shore. Ah! it is a blessed thing to
be able to meet death with a beaming countenance
and a gladsome heart.

There have been times when amid pleasure and
enjoyment I have loathed the very thought of death.
But when God afflicts a man, then he feels the vanity
and deceitfulness of the world; and if he is a believer
in the Lord Jesus Christ, he will long to see his Redeemer,
and be with Him in the abodes of happiness and light
throughout an endless eternity!

I'm a poor sinner, and nothing at all,
But Jesus Christ is my all in all.


WHITMORE WINSLOW 1849. AGE 14.
