Anyone who meets a testing challenge head-on and manages to stick it out is mighty fortunate. For such persons loyally in love with God, the reward is life and more life. James 1:12 (MSG)
If we can truly grasp His love and how high, and wide, and deep it is, then we will understand that no matter what comes our way, our God is quick to love, quick to save, and quick to heal. Believe me, I understand the true pain of losing a child, a marriage, or a dream, but the truth is that if we grasp how much our Father loves us, then His heart is already making a way for our hope, our healing, and our restoration. His love is so encompassing that it knows no boundaries - even when the worst of life is thrown in your direction, the best of His love is there to help. He does not love us less and therefore just allow us to hurt, He loves us more and steps in - knowing that there will be troubles in this world. Take heart, He has overcome them.
The verse says that the reward is life. Interesting right? During the most desperate times of our lives, when all seems to be falling apart, God offers us life. If we truly grasp the love of our Father, the present situations of this world will not overtake us. His love offers hope for another day, His life offers renewal for a new tomorrow. Truly grasping the steadfastness of His love may not lessen the pain of this world, but
