He Died on the Cross For Us

Finding Joy in Times of Adversity and Pain
1 Peter 4:12-13 NLT
Don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through as if something strange were happening to you. Instead, be very glad — for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to the world.
Has God forsaken you? Why would he allow you to experience such deep adversity? He has a clear purpose for your suffering. Trust him to teach you and give you his joy.
Thank you Father for helping me to trust you in this trial and finding joy in times of pain.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23
