From the bitterness of disease a man learns the sweetness of health. (Catalan proverb)
You really enjoy a sunny day after weeks of rain and clouds, don’t you? And winning a game after a string of losses is really refreshing, too, isn’t it? So, when we are in the midst of some kind of suffering—physical or emotional, we should remind ourselves what it’s like to come into the light after a long ride through a dark tunnel. Do your best to be hopeful and positive when times are tough.
Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. (Palm 25:5)
