God uses Tests to prove our faith.
Suffering exists, primarily, to make Christians like their Christ.”Jared C. Wilson
I haven’t come as far as I’d like, in understanding the things that have happened this year. But here’s one thing I do know: when it comes to pain, God isn’t often in the business of taking it away. Instead, he adds to it. “He is more of a giver than a taker. He doesn’t take away my darkness, he adds light. He doesn’t spare me of thirst, he brings water. He doesn’t cure my loneliness, he comes near. So why do we believe that when we are in pain, it must mean God is far?”Nightbirde
In light of heaven, the worst suffering on earth will be seen to be no more serious than one night in an inconvenient hotel.”Saint Teresa of Avila
