It's a curious thing to me when I see people who always want comfort and ease. They call it "blessing." They talk about living a prosperous life and they constantly rebuke every from of adversity or uncomfortable circumstance that might make them less than perfectly happy in the present moment.
What they are missing is the bigger blessing- the more important blessing. The lessons, the strength, the growth, The sanctification process. All of this happens through trial, pain, heartache.
If you are in the middle of a storm, seek not to escape it. Seek to learn from it. Consider it joy that you have been given a precious opportunity to grow.
Be brave, my friends, - M
I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship. - Louisa May Alcott
