For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. (2 Corinthians 4:17 NIV)
I think one of my favorite sayings is “don’t give up but grow up” – Life is not always magical, in fact I think it’s more difficulties and trials than it is magic. How we respond to our troubles says a whole lot about us and a whole lot about our faith. So why do we have to go through heartache and hurt? Because God is teaching us something. He is using it for a purpose. The temporary troubles we face are preparing us for something far greater than we can imagine. Don’t give up love, grow up in faith.
#AMORNINGPRAYER: God, You totally see the hurt, heartache + pain that I have and will endure. I trust that You have a plan for it all. Help me to overcome, persevere and grow in my faith. May I fix my eyes on You and proclaim that You are bigger than my problems! Amen
