I thought this was pretty good (via Challies):
.... We will be afflicted, we will be perplexed, we will be persecuted, we will be struck down, but we will not be crushed, we will not be driven to despair, we will not be forsaken, and we will not be destroyed. For although this treasure of the gloriousness of Christ is in weak jars of clay, it is to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us (2 Corinthians 4:7-12). Hence, though our bodies may fail us, yet still inwardly God is working and furnishing us to the end of his glory. ....

So we must not lose heart, for his sure word assures us that God never forsakes us. And therefore, today we can together with Paul and say, ‘because of the sure word of God and his certain promises, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I am content, and I can do all things through him who strengthen me’ (Philippians 4:12-13).
Sorrowful yet always rejoicing
