We were never promised a life without suffering.

None of us are exempt from life-altering conditions and/or circumstances that change us. A serious cancer diagnosis, a loss of a spouse, a devastating house fire, or a fatal car wreck can instantly remake our life. And suddenly there we are , looking at the half glass of water…trying to decide if it’s half full, or half empty. In I Peter 4:12-14 it’s quite evident, trials are our destiny, to one degree or another. For in these sufferings we can intimately identify with and unite to Christ & His sufferings for us…and through this participation of suffering, the power of Christ’s resurrection can be manifested in our lives as Christians. We were never promised a life without suffering and it’s our choice to bloom where we’re planted, or to rot in the ground.
