“Why is This Happening?”
“My brethren, count it all joy when trouble comes your way: knowing this, that the testing of your faith produces endurance.” James 1:2-3
What you are enduring right now is for your good! I know it doesn’t ‘feel’ good, but it’s going to work out for the good.
It is developing your spiritual muscles. It’s working patience in you for the journey.
Think of how far you’ve come. The things that used to get to you don’t get to you as much now. The things that used to worry you all night and stay on your mind all day seem to dissipate quicker now…
Now that you are spending time with God, you understand that when He allows something to come into your life, it is there on purpose, and that He has a plan for it.
You’ve even been able to help others understand it, because you’ve been through it.
Continue to give thanks and rejoice that once you come out of this, (just like He brought you out last time) you’re going to be even better, and that you are developing patience.
