When God thinks of you, He desires for you to be someone who perseveres. We read in Romans 8:28 – ‘We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him.’
This is NOT saying that everything that happens is good. Rather it is saying that no matter what happens – good or bad – if you love God, He is able to turn things around so that they work for your good. Not for comfort always or what might feel good but what IS good. Isn’t that a powerful promise to hold onto when life takes a turn for the worse?
