What it takes to struggle with something hard

Just read a fantastic devotional entitled: "What it Takes to Struggle with Something Hard" by Rachel Olsen. (Thanks for sending it Aunt Connie.)

To those of you living or dealing with something difficult in your life, may the Lord provide you an extra dose of His love tonight. I am so sorry for those of you who are in pain right now. If you are seeing things a little dark, if you are body is physically hurting, if you are grieving the loss of someone or something, may you receive an extra dose of understanding and love.

"I don't know what your story is today—what you are struggling with or against. But I know this: God knows your situation and He is not indifferent toward it or you. He loves you mightily! And His right arm is not too short to save you. So lean into Him because you need His strength until His deliverance comes. Lean in, pray and persevere despite the pain you are in. And keep hope alive in your heart. For this is how we struggle with something hard while holding the title 'More than Conquerors in Christ.' In Him overwhelming victory is ours."
