I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you
Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him (KJV)
Be like the great George Mueller of Bristol England. On the Lord's Day, February 6, 1870, his wife Mary died of rheumatic fever. They had been married 39 years and 4 months. The Lord gave him the strength to preach at her memorial service. He said,
“I miss her in numberless ways, and shall miss her yet more and more. But as a child of God, and as a servant of the Lord Jesus, I bow, I am satisfied with the will of my Heavenly Father, I seek by perfect submission to His holy will to glorify Him, I kiss continually the hand that has thus afflicted me.” – John Piper - https://www.desiringgod.org/messages/job-the-revelation-of-god-in-suffering
