Suffering, pain, and trying times are things that we can not avoid. Because of the world that we live in we will all face suffering, pain,, or hard times at some point in life. When we face these times it is important that we do not find ourselves blaming God. He is not the one that causes these things to happen. We live in a world where evil is running rampant. Bad things are happening and the enemy is using people to spread darkness everywhere. Plus, let’s not forget that even Jesus warned us that in this life we will face trails and tribulations.
It is never easy to go through something difficult or hurtful. We all would love to have a life that is always rainbows and sunshine but that is not reality. Sometimes it will help us to just accept the fact that no matter how good of a person we are or how righteous our actions are we will face difficult or painful times. It may not be fair or justifiable but it’s just how things are. Life is not always fair but we can learn and grow from anything that comes our way. And unfortunately, sometimes, we have to go through something bad to learn a very valuable lesson that will help us in the future.
I have seen people endure something that was absolutely horrible but it turned out to be the very thing that was necessary for them to experience so that their life could be turned completely around and into something glorious. I have heard stories that would make my own heart break but it ended up opening doors for them to turn their pain into someone else’s gain and they are helping others who are enduring the things that they went through. In the midst of it all we wish it would end, wonder if we will be able to make it through, question why it’s happening, and even question God. We can’t understand what we have done to deserve it. It’s important to know that while we may not have all the answers to the questions, the one thing that we do not have to question is the promises of God. We don’t have to question the faithfulness and unfailing love of God or the fact that he works all things out for the good of those who put their trust in him. He can bring good from the worst experiences and I am proof of that. He can equip us with the strength to endure and to come out on the other side a better person.
No matter what the situation may be, you can, and will get through it. It may not be fair and it may hurt a whole heck of alot but you will get through it. Jesus promised to never leave nor foresake us and he holds true to his word. You have a mighty power working inside of you and he is going to pull you through this. Don’t get weary or give up because the victory will be yours in the end.
