Help Me Persevere

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. (Romans 5:3-5)
Jesus, You chose to suffer on the cross for the sake of the world. And because of Your suffering, I can spend eternity with You. Thank You for showing me what it looks like to suffer well. Thank You for becoming my source of hope. When I encounter trials of any kind, please use those moments to refine my character and to keep my heart focused on You. Amen.
One word came to mind when I read this, hallelujah! 🙂
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
