A Plan To Overcome Suffering
Our life has its beginning in suffering. Life’s span is marked by pain and tragedy, and our lives terminate with the enemy called death. The person who expects to escape the pangs of suffering and disappointment simply has no knowledge of the Bible, of history, or of life. The master musician knows that suffering precedes glory and acclaim. He knows the hours, days and months of grueling practice and self-sacrifice that precede the one hour of perfect rendition when his mastership is applauded.
The student knows that years of study, privation and self-renunciation precede the triumphant day of graduation and honors. Yes, there are clouds of suffering for each one of us, but God says, “I come to you in the thick dark cloud of suffering,” By faith you can see His blessed face in the storm. God has His plan and purpose in all suffering.
Here’s a prayer for you: “Heavenly Father, help me to remember that none of my suffering is in vain. Through it, teach me more of Your love and comfort.”

You can overcome suffering, but it is not going to happen overnight. You have to pay a price to obtain the prize. If you are going through challenging times today, remember that it is only for a season. You will out come better off than when you started. Hang in there and do not give up. DON’T QUIT, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
You are destined to win, no matter what you’re facing at the moment. Obstacles fade away when you face them head on. Do not allow fear to prevent you from moving forward. Fear is just an illusion. If you can get past your fears and step out of your comfort zone, you will see tremendous growth in your life and you will conquer territories that you once thought were impossible to conquer.
You’re a warrior, my friend. Go out and win like you have never done before. Do not forget to help others in need. If you need something, go out and find someone else in need and meet their need. If you help enough people get what they want, you will have everything in life that you want. As you sow into other people’s lives, your life will be enriched and you will prosper beyond your wildest imagination. Get your life in order by contributing positively to the community that you’re a part of.
