"When we see the potential that suffering has to produce character in our lives, we perservere through it with God's help"
Over the past few weeks, I have been feeling like I've been under attack. So many things were just happening, one thing after the other. With each attack, I was presented with the option of just running away and isolating myself. I have been down the road of isolation, and I refuse to give the enemy that power over me. God has brought me through so much, and I have peace and comfort in knowing this too shall pass and I will be that much stronger!
Romans 5 New International Version (NIV)
5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hopeof the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
