You’re being built

for adversity.

The only way the necessary pieces can be put in place is by actually experiencing a measure of adversity.

The goal isn’t to produce a stoic sufferer, but a resilient rejoicer.

One who can respond to persecution with blessing.

One who can walk forward in love when the hits are raining down.

One who continues to bear fruit in dry seasons.

One who’s capable of bringing healing even in times of hurting.

One who begins to look a bit like the suffering servant who was anointed with the oil of gladness.

You’re being built for adversity.
