"Remember IF you are serious for God - take your current circumstances AND EMBRACE THEM.
YOU WILL BE GIVEN ‘GRACE TO EMBRACE’ then see them as opportunities for your growth and on a bigger scale - He is at work for His Kingdom’s redemptive plan and purpose ... not only in your own life but to be able to work through you for the lives of others.
Enable Him to give you awareness of the condition of your heart for better and for the worse. Let your circumstances let Him reveal your weaknesses that need His strength and grace and His capacity to change your heart. Let them give Him the opportunity to take up FULL residence in the brokenness of your heart and the self-sufficiency of your will, the protective walls, and the overwhelming loss or pain or struggle you feel.
Allow them to enable Him to provide the way out. Let Him delight Himself in you to Covenant you through them. When you make it through the process of your flesh you will see the purpose and as it has been said before “you are in training for reigning.” 1.
Recall, everyone yes everyone has their cross to bear - there not a one in the body of Christ.
“Even if you think you can stand up to temptation, be careful not to fall. You are tempted in the same way that everyone else is tempted. But God can be trusted not to let you be tempted too much, and he will show you how to escape from your temptations.” 1 Corinthians 10:12-13
