We hate the trials, but they make us strong and brave and compassionate.
Both my kids have type 1 diabetes. It isn’t easy, but they are strong. They manage more as 12 and 15 year-old kids than most adults I know.
Hypotheticals will never show us how strong we are. Only living it will.
Hard things stretch us beyond anything we would ever willingly bring upon ourselves.
Sometimes God brings trials to us, and sometimes God cries through it happening to us, but always God uses it for good.
“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
