Shining light into someone’s temporary darkness when they just can’t seem to find their way out…… It’s a true gift.
Difficult times leave us with a lasting impression.
They alter us and change the way we view our lives.
We have learned who and what matters in our life and undoubtedly we have a greater appreciation for them. Surviving hardship gives us a broader perspective on what “hardship” really is.
“He comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God,” 2 Corinthians 1:4.
After we have survived a difficult time, we are given a deep gratitude for our life. You will look back on the things you use to complain about and be thankful for a new perspective.
Difficult times will happen. To find the light, we have to go through the darkness and while you’re in the midst of it, try to take a deep breath and remember that the lessons you are learning will shift your view of life.
You will learn what matters, who matters, how strong you are and how blessed you are to have wisdom to help others during their hard and dark days.
That’s what difficult times teach us and they are some of the most important lessons we can ever learn.
“In the day of prosperity be happy, but in the day of adversity consider — God has made the one as well as the other so that man will not discover anything that will be after him,” Ecclesiastes 7:14.
In His Shadow,
