In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials
1 Peter 1:6
I realize that many of us have sung or at least heard the song “Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt Redman, but I believe the words of it stand true. Please take a few moments now and watch this video. Be encouraged. Move from “shoe-gazing” to Christ praising. Your heart will feel better and it’s what Christ deserves.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Then the LORD said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings.
