2 Corinthians 4:8-11
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body.
We go through alot of stuff when we are walking with the Lord. The above passage says it all, that we are hard pressed but not crushed. That is so awesome when we go through storms we may be struck down, but not destroyed. God is so good, all the time, because He is our Savior we can look at his life and see how He kept control in all that was going on in his life as he walked this world of pain and sorrow.
We will be given over to death for Jesus' sake, this means his life can be revealed in our mortal body. This means that if we stand even through these storms He will be revealed in us.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
We must remember the words above, we must Rejoice no matter what. Let's be gentle and not anxious but let's pray about everything,God is good all the time and He will never forsake us, at times we may think He has but this is when we need to focus on Him
