Quick Quote | Matt Chandler: On Suffering

This is so good. We need to remember that God has already given us the heads up on this. Our suffering isn’t random, it’s not pointless, it’s a gift. No, seriously.

“…We also REJOICE in our sufferings, because we KNOW that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, CHARACTER; and character, HOPE. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his LOVE into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has GIVEN US.” – Romans 5:3-5

Suffering is never fun, but let’s be encouraged knowing that God is at work in the mess! More: Matt Chandler Catalyst H/T: Ann Voskamp | @amnvoskamp
