Endurance

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. Romans 5:3
There are many people today facing situations that seem unbeatable. The economy is sluggish, relationships struggling, jobs being lost...if you had to name these things you could surely say that they are "problems and trials". But there is a good side to going through adversity. You get tougher. You get stronger. You develop endurance.
You may be facing a financial trial today that seems like a huge problem. Stay tough and rejoice in God's power and the hope of His help. Trust Him.  Emotional troubles? Again, rejoice knowing that God is going to come to your aid at just the right time with the perfect answer. In the meantime, smile about those powerful muscles that you are building!
