Are you discerning a vocation? Do you think about serving Christ as a priest or deacon? Wondering why things seem to slam up against you? Do you feel like you are charging upstream, against the current, sinking in quicksand half the time?
You’re not just being tested – you’re being trained! Memorize these two Scripture verses and meditate on them. Do it now.
1 Peter 4:12
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial that has come upon you, as though something strange were happening to you.
2 Timothy 3:12
Indeed, all who desire to live godly lives in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
It’s a good start.
