And the God of all grace, who called you to HIs eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast.
1 Peter 5:10
There are "blessings in tribulation." After I have gone through a season of suffering and can stand beyond it looking back, there should be a new light in my eye, a new glow in my face, a new gentleness in my touch, a new hope in my heart--and a new consecration in my life. I ought not to hang back in the shadows of sorrow; I must move out of them, radiant with the light of victory and peace, willing to step into a place of service and ministry. The comfort that God alone can give puts new joy in my step and gives me a new baptism of love and power.
