I am guaranteed suffering as a believer. This doesn’t mean that I should seek to suffer but it doesn’t mean that I should avoid it either. Suffering is apart of the promise. Suffering is apart of the call. Suffering is apart of my identity.
The fact is though it isn’t about me. I was created in God’s image and that’s beautiful. I should want to be known by God’s presence in my life. I should want to stand out for HIM and be associated with HIM. God is loving, merciful, gracious, kind, truthful, and so much more. Bearing His image is more than a notion is it a call. Pray that this gets to my heart.
