“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” - Romans 12:12
In Romans 12, the Apostle Paul offers instructions on how to make the most of a life determined to honor God. He wrote to believers who were facing great physical hardship & difficulty, people who could have easily become distraught and overwhelmed. But Paul shows us all a way forward. We can put our hope in the Lord and choose to remain centered in joy. We can hold fast to our confidence in God and know that hardships do come to an end. We can continue to lift our burdens before the Lord and trust that He will answer our prayers according to His love and wisdom. Let’s stay true to faith in Christ. In the end, it’s going to be more than worth it!
