Cause to rejoice

rom5.3-4

When we’re in the midst of a conflict it’s pretty hard to rejoice. But you know, for those who have walked with Christ for a long time, we can see the purpose in rejoicing in affliction. Because we can look back and see how past conflicts have increased our faith, built our perseverance, showed us that this world offers nothing that can compare to His presence in our lives. We KNOW there is a purpose in hardship…and that gives us cause to rejoice.
