Life can be painful and God can seem so far away at times. It’s easy for us to become discouraged. Though no one enjoys suffering, it is a necessary, normal part of the Christian life and it’s often in these desert seasons that we grow more into the image of Christ. We need to seek God for the grace and strength to overcome every trial and to ultimately fulfill our purpose in His kingdom. May these resources help you understand how to endure suffering, and may they point you to the God of all hope and comfort.
