There are serious situations in life that change us forever.
Then there are the chronic situations in life that will never change.
Both threaten our faith. Both are opportunities to become stronger or weaker. Despite the wounds that come from difficult, discouraging, and desperate situations, the scar tissue may be noticeable, but can become stronger and better able to tolerate stretching forces.
Yes, you can become stronger when the unfairness of life beats you down. It’s all in how you look at it.
If you don’t think about what is after life here on earth, then what is life all about for you?
Do you have hope? If so, hope for what? That one day you will die and it will be all over?
The Bible says this:
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart;
yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
God put eternity in our hearts. That’s why we think about it.
One day, life will be over here. The injustices, unfairness, pain, and all evil will be eradicated.
If life has been difficult for you, set your thoughts on eternity when God makes everything right.
It’s the only way we can become stronger.
