Sometimes it’s a process to see the good within a bad experience. In Romans 5:3-4, Paul describes suffering as producing perseverance, character, and finally hope in our lives.
Trauma and grief aren’t a one and done deal. They can affect us for a long time, but we must choose to focus on the growth they foster in our hearts and minds. With time, you will witness remarkable endurance, maturity, and eventually joy as a result of suffering.
