eat the honey;after climbing the Hill Difficulty, we sit down in the arbour to rest; after
traversing the Valley of Humiliation, after fighting with Apollyon, the shining one
appears, with the healing branch from the tree of life. Our sorrows, like the passing
keels of the vessels upon the sea, leave a silver line of holy light behind them
"afterwards." It is peace, sweet, deep peace, which follows the horrible turmoil which
once reigned in our tormented, guilty souls. See, then, the happy estate of a Christian!
He has his best things last, and he therefore in this world receives his worst things first.
But even his worst things are "afterward" good things, harsh ploughings yielding joyful
harvests. Even now he grows rich by his losses, he rises by his falls, he lives by dying,
and becomes full by being emptied; if, then, his grievous afflictions yield him so much
peaceable fruit in this life, what shall be the full vintage of joy "afterwards" in heaven? If
his dark nights are as bright as the world's days, what shall his days be? If even his
starlight is more splendid than the sun, what must his sunlight be? If he can sing in a
dungeon, how sweetly will he sing in heaven! If he can praise the Lord in the fires, how
will he extol Him before the eternal throne! If evil be good to him now, what will the
overflowing goodness of God be to him then? Oh, blessed "afterward!" Who would not
be a Christian? Who would not bear the present cross for the crown which cometh
afterwards? But herein is work for patience, for the rest is not for to-day, nor the
triumph for the present, but "afterward." Wait, O soul, and let patience have her perfect
work.

From Charles Spurgeon's Morning & Evening - May, Day 18, Evening.


Hebrews 12:2-3
2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set
before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the
throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you
will not grow weary and lose heart.

Matthew 14:22-33

22 Jesus Walks on the Sea

Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other
side, while He sent the multitudes away. 23 And when He had sent the multitudes away,
He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone
there. 24 But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the
wind was contrary.

25 Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. 26 And
when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a
ghost!" And they cried out for fear.

27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying,
 "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be
afraid."
 

28 And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You
on the water."

29 So He said,
"Come." And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on
the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was
afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"

31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him,
"O
you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind
ceased.

33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "Truly You are
the Son of God."
