“The difference between school and life? In school, you are taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you are given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
As I look at this quote I can’t help but appreciate it’s truth and also think of how so many people misunderstand suffering. Many people see suffering as a form of punishment. While in some cases this may be true, suffering is also a part of life for God’s people as well those who do not to choose to serve Him. When times get rough or we begin to suffer we must seek the Lord and His guidance to help us understand. Below are a few verses to help remind us that we will have tests in our lives and we need to seek the lesson God may be trying to teach us.
As you continue to face each day and opportunity it may bring, try to focus on the lesson you are to learn. If you can do this, the opportunity becomes just a little easier to accept and overcome.
