1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace who has called you to this eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you
**So sorry to have been away for a while but I’ve been battling a sinus bug that just wouldn’t die a quiet death**
I just rediscovered this little gem, and immediately after I read it I could totally relate to it. God has done this for me so many times over the past couple of years. This has been and is still so evident in my life. I would of course prefer to avoid the suffering portion of this verse, but without it I would never have received and felt the restoration. That in itself makes the suffering bearable.
