Joy in difficult times
The joys that breaks through tears
let's be realistic! Life is not all happiness. Times of sorrow and pain come to everyone. Christians are not exempt from these problems; it would be wrong if they were. We are in this world to care and to understand and sympathize. We cannot do it if we have not experienced the same sufferings as other people do. In this way we follow our Lord Jesus Christ, who chose to comment accept the worst kind of suffering in order that he might know and share our deepest needs. The Bible warns us that there will be times of persecution and hardship. But for the believers, there will be joy through tears.
Suffering is a mystery, but it can produce beautiful lives.
