It’s Ok To Be A Christian And Go Through Tough Times

Let’s get really honest with each other for a minute. Let’s put aside all the clichés, feel good one-liners, and quick to apply Bible-verse band aids. Sometimes, life is just really hard. And no matter how many inspirational quotes you might throw someone, there is a good chance there burdens are much too deep to be fixed with a quick-to-speak answer.

It is often in the very toughest of times and trials that God brings us to a crisis of faith, and it’s through that experience that we begin to pray. I’ve heard it said that, “when you’re swept off your feet, get on your knees.” Whatever broken conditions you are facing today – in your marriage, your home, your family, through a child that’s wandered away, or the collapse of a career?

]How many times through our pain do we discover our purpose? How many times through our pain do we discover power?

“It is so often pain that drives us to dependence upon God.”

Trust in Him at all times, pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.

In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD. (John 16:33)
Jesus didn’t promise us we wouldn’t have hard times, He told us we definitely would have hard times. But He also told us that He would bring us through those hard times and that He would never leave us.
Thank you for this word it is good. Why does the word tell us over and over again that suffering is good. Because it is in the middle of that pain that we discover how much we need our God.
