There are few things more rewarding in life than praying and toiling your way to success in the face of dreadful adversity.
Today, we can all testify of the grace and favor of God in our lives; but if we are honest enough with ourselves, so too can each of us attest to adversities in their purest forms – disappointments beyond measure.
But friends, why complain about the difficult times, when adversity and disappointments are meant to teach us the virtues of faith, patience, tenacity, humility, and compassion – ultimately molding our characters, and preparing us for new seasons in our lives?
In the words of Theodore Roosevelt – 26th President of the United States of America: “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty…”
Adversity and disappointment were never meant to break you, they are meant to make you.
