Reflecting On Our Trials

We endure our hardship for the greater good God wants to do in us and through us for His glory and our betterment.

We will come out of our trials as gold refined by the fire, separated from the impurities God saw in us before the heat began to build.

Tribulation builds character, maturity in Christ, and shapes us further into God’s perfect image.

Overcoming our greatest challenges brings us hope for our future and the strength for challenges yet to come.

Trials break us down and help us lay open as empty vessels before God, waiting to be filled with more of Him.

When we are reduced to nothing at all, God is up to something great.

Difficulties beyond our capabilities help us be still and watch God exercise His mighty power and great love for us.

Going through hard times gives us empathy, sympathy, and the ability to comfort others who are suffering and poor in spirit.

Trials help us put the world and our worries behind us and the work of the cross before us.

Tribulation teaches us spiritual discipline that only a loving Father would bestow upon His children in order to help them reach their full potential in Christ.

During hardship, God is never closer and more present as we seek Him and draw near to Him.

Suffering helps us to decrease and lets God increase.

Our response to challenges can serve as a powerful testimony to our faith in God.

Faith is the substance of our belief in an Almighty God who can do exceedingly more than we can even fathom.

What is impossible with man is always possible with God – HIMpossible.

Trials teach us to trust in God instead of man or our circumstances.

He wipes the tears from our eyes and holds every tear in a bottle.

He will never leave us nor forsake us in our greatest time of need.

He loves us enough to leave His heavenly throne and die on our behalf.

He understands pain and suffering to the point of death.

He is our High Priest who can sympathize with our weaknesses.

The Holy Spirit hears our groans and translates them into prayers to God.

Our Heavenly Father hears our cries for help, and He will answer them!
