It’s no game. It’s not easy. It’s a struggle. But what thing is worth having, what thing will you appreciate, if it is just given so easily?
That’s our walk with God. In the end there will be streamers, balloons, shouts of joy and congrats. Just like any other race.
2 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. 4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.
We are in training. As we train we get stronger…you will be sore in the beginning, but after it’s all said and done…
Imagine the heavy things that you will be able to lift that once were so heavy.
Let God be your fitness coach/personal trainer! Expect a little pain, but also expect a great healthy ending!!
