How many of us have found ourselves in life moments that feel like they are going to break us? We feel as though we can’t take anymore and this moment may just be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Seasons like these seem to drag on forever and most days it seems that there will be no light at the end of the tunnel.
I’ve had this kind of season and it lasted an excruciatingly long amount of time. Days, weeks, months, where I thought it would never get better. BUT IT DID! And there is joy, renewal, strength, a new sense of purpose and meaning that came from it!
What if the worst parts of your life are actually gateways to the very best parts you’d never want to do without?
Sometimes hardship happens not because of what you’ve done but because of something God is doing.
When you are chosen for suffering, you are chosen for the blessing of displaying the works of God.
Our deepest desperation can lead to a great revelation from God.
When we are afflicted, we are being made more effective.
In the end, not only will our suffering produce perseverance-endurance for our race-but it will bring forth hope. 🌱
