"…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!
