1 Peter 4:12-13
Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
Sometimes, the stress, the pains, and even the sufferings in life can make you feel like you must be the only one that is "going through" right now. Well rest assured you are not alone! Just as Christ suffered, so must we; however, the key to overcoming suffering is never forgetting that He is always with you! No, every day isn't always going to be perfect. The birds are not going to always sing, the flowers aren't going to always bloom, and unfortunately, the sun can't shine every day. But, if you remember who kept you from losing your mind on those most difficult days, you'll have an automatic appreciation of knowing that if you don't give up on God while you're walking into your purpose, you will get the victory!
