Suffering is inevitable, but God is not glorified through our suffering. He is glorified when we have a good attitude during our suffering - and He wants us to be victorious!
So why would we choose to remain bitter, angry & wounded or depressed?
There's one surefire way to overcome suffering with the right attitude: Set your mind, & keep it set, on things above, not on things of the earth. You must be armed with right thinking, or you will give up during hard times.
Set your mind & be fully aware that moving from being a victim to being a victor will not be a quick process. It will take time, but your experience will make you stronger & enable you to help others who are facing similar battles.
Get excited about your future & realize that going through something with God means that you will come out on the other side with a victory that cannot be taken away from you.
Yes, yes, & yes Joyce! Preach!!!
