Are you suffering? Hope is on the way!
Just a quick word for you, and this word comes straight from The Word. Whether we are talking about our economic situation, raising children, or career advancement, there is one ingredient that will do us so much good – if we will respond well to it. But, oh, how we Americans hate it!!! What is this much hated ingredient for growth?
“…but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that our suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.” Romans 5:3-5
