Having hard times?
Spurgeon, "CHEER FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED"
Some say, "These are hard times!"
Times have always been hard ever since I recollect them,
and I suppose they ever will be, for they used to be hard in our
grandfathers' days, and there seems to be no likelihood but that
they will continue to be so. Yet we always talk of "the good old
times," and when our children succeed us, they will speak about
our times as being "the good old times" too. The fact is, the
present time is the best time that ever was, and "now" is the only
time that belongs to us, for the PAST is gone and the FUTURE is not
come. The PRESENT is what we have got in hand; let us make the
right use of it.
