InHim

I have a whole bunch on my blog if you don't mind me posting it. (Click on InHim)

My favorite Scripture on suffering:
Romans 8:18
"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us."

The Practice Of The Presence Of God - Letters:
"Eleventh Letter: I do not pray that you may be delivered from your pains; but I pray earnestly that God gives you strength and patience to bear them as long as He pleases. Comfort yourself with Him who holds you fastened to the cross. He will loose you when He thinks fit. Happy are those who suffer with Him. Accustom yourself to suffer in that manner, and seek from Him the strength to endure as much, and as long, as He judges necessary for you."

Judy Santos

Often we don't understand suffering. Nobody likes it.
It reveals who we are and how we perceive ourselves.
It molds our perspective, fears, behavior and attitude.
It reveals God's steadfast love, His provision and His grace.
It underlines our dependence on Him when we are helpless.
Although we may not see it at the time, it becomes a vehicle for God to use for our ultimate blessing as we take giant leaps of faith to trust in Him.
