- I've begged God for answers that haven't come.
- I've "known" God would fix it.
- I've gotten depressed.
- I've obsessed over it.
Now my prayers are more like this:
"Dear Lord, you know how much I want this situation to change, but if You are allowing it for my good (Romans 8:28), help me deal with it in ways that please You."
We don't understand every reason God allows hardships in our lives, but I know this trial has:
1. Reminded me how much I need God.
2 Corinthians 1:8-9
2. Given me compassion for others who are suffering.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
3. Taught me perseverance.
Are you suffering in some area of your life? Then join me in depending on His strength, comforting others, and persevering!
