Hope in Adversity


"…let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually…"  Hebrews 13:15a


"We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;" II Corinthians 4:8


"These pains and troubles here are like the type wich the printers set; as they look now, we have to read them backwards, and they seem to have no sense or meaning in them;

but up yonder, when the Lord God prints us off in the life to come, we shall find they make brave reading."            ~Martin Luther on his sickbed


"And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest…And now I exhort you to be of good cheer" Acts 27:18a, 22a

One day, we will know the truth about every storm, every pain, every trial that we went through here on earth; and it will all make sense. 

We will see that God is a purposeful God.  He wastes no pain.  It all works for our good, and to His glory.

Keep on praising Him, my friend…even in the midst of your adversity!
