This past year has been a big faith journey for me, and my family. Stepping out in faith often comes with it's fair share of criticism, suffering and extreme blessing. The suffering almost always walks hand in hand with blessing. So we take the suffering, walk in hope and dwell in the blessings they bring.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
depends a good deal on where you are standing;
it also depends on what kind of a person you are”
-Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
-G. K. Chesterton
