Hardships and Lessons

Remember that life’s greatest lessons are usually learned at the worst times and from the worst mistakes. (Anthony Gucciardi, entrepreneur)

Another unknown writer acknowledges the difficulty but takes a positive view of life: “Life is a journey with problems to solve and lessons to learn but most of all experiences to enjoy.” Rather than sulking about our problems, it would be more helpful to ask, “What can I learn from this difficulty?” No matter how hard the situation, the lessons learned can bring lasting joy.

You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but you will restore me to life again and lift me up from the depths of the earth (Psalm 71:20).

If we endure hardship, we will reign with him (2 Timothy 2:12).
