“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Romans 5:3-5

TODAY’S WORD…

.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials,

for we know that they help us develop endurance.

.

And endurance develops strength of character,

and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

.

And this hope will not lead to disappointment.

For we know how dearly God loves us,

because He has given us the Holy Spirit

to fill our hearts with His love.

.

– Romans 5:3-5 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

The peace attainable in this life

does not come from wanting not to have any problems,

but rather through a determination – full of hope; of character –

which helps us manage to rise above suffering,

and to stay faithful through endurance.

.

Suffering is necessary for us,

because it is the normal way to grow in virtue.

That is why it is providential.

.

With Christ by our side,

suffering will lead us to ultimate joy and happiness,

for we know how dearly God loves us,

because He has given us the Holy Spirit

to fill our hearts with His love.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, with You by my side, my burden is lighter…and I rejoice!
