Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
Romans 5:3-4 NIV
Any form of growth requires discomfort. Becoming stronger, becoming smarter, becoming more spiritually mature. Everything worth having requires grit and discomfort to attain. Like muscles forming from strain and stress, so too our spiritual muscles grow.
This portion of life may be difficult, but if used wisely, we will walk away stronger, smarter, and more resilient. Do not shy away from a challenge.
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
Luke 16:10 NIV
Some of us ask God to prove himself, to show us things that we may not even be ready to handle. Or we ask God for more, when we have not even begun to start what is already on our plate. If you want greatness, be comfortable with the idea of trials. Whether you are Christian or not.
Work hard for the things you want. If you want to serve God, be obedient and listen. If you want to make gains, start lifting and stop making excuses, if you want better finances stop spending so much and start saving.
It will be uncomfortable for a little while but will he rewarding to you for pulling through. You will come through your trial stronger.
These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
1 Peter 1:7 NIV
May God give you the grit to accomplish what you need to accomplish. And may you be blessed with gains.
