Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. [NLT] – Romans 8:35, 37
Going through uncomfortable times, doesn’t mean He no longer loves you, rather they are there to remind you who you are in Christ. A warrior is called one, because He overcame a lion :), He’s not called a warrior for nothing ;). And for you to have a success story you need to have overcome some things, or else how will you become a success. If you are tired of living a dull, boring, lack of progress kind of life, you need something to ginger you to your next level, and that’s where distress helps you out. Don’t ever see it as a hindrance, because when you start seeing troubles as there to bring you down, that’s the beginning of the end. Make up your mind early which one you want to be known as. A success who overcame many many challenges, or a nobody who caved in! The choice is always with you.
