Life is hard. Does anyone wish to argue about that? In good times it’s easy to talk about faith. It’s easy to see why we believe and encourage others to “keep the faith" when they’re feeling down. But what about periods of prolonged suffering and attacks? How on earth do we keep the faith in tough times?
Our world is full of storms. There are snowstorms, hailstorms, and rainstorms. Reflecting on the divine purpose in hardship can help us respond to trials in a God-honoring way as we seek to understand the lessons He wants us to learn through life’s dark moments.
