2 Timothy 2:3 "You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ."
Psalm 31:24 "Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord."
Through the trials in life, through the heartache and times of distress is when God is molding us, He is creating us to be the person He wants us to be. Just because I walk as a Christian does not mean things will always be happy, it doesn't mean that my circumstances will always bring a smile to my face. I may not find the answers I am looking for until the other side of heaven, but it is in that, heaven that I can find real peace through all things.
