Life is not fair at times, no one can deny that fact. At some point each and everyone of us will suffer through something. These trials ,
tribulations and tests may seem unfair and unjust. In many cases there appears that there is not a plausible explanation or justification for the
situation or the effects that these events cause. The circumstances can produce grave repercussions mentally, physically and spiritually on a
individual. In some instances the culprit is easy to identify, and yet there are others times when there is no one to blame and we can not see the
reasoning for these hardships we endure. It is in our human nature to place blame, and when suffering is the outcome for an event where
responsibility can not be placed, sadly, some are quick to point the finger at God. Some argue that if God was all powerful and loving why would he
allow such things to happen, ironically the very events that are intended to bring us closer to him are often times the very same incidents that turn
us away. There are blessings hidden within any misfortune that we endure, and a purpose. Each anguish that we undergo carries a lesson, but it is
up to the individual to discern what the message is. There are basic fortunes to be gained in all suffering…
10. Faith, hope and love.
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears,
and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
