When far from home – lost luggage, missed flights, illness/injury can ambush you and get you down. But seasoned travellers cope with the stressful situation and move on. They don’t allow it to rob them of their love of travel or future plans.
Similarly, when bad things happen because we’re serving Jesus, we mustn’t be thrown off course or lose our love for Jesus. “So if you find life difficult because you’re doing what God said, take it in stride. Trust him. He knows what he’s doing and he’ll keep on doing it” (1 Peter 4:19 – http://bit.ly/2IN7wNO).
