I’m sure you’ve heard people say that as Christians, we should rejoice in our hardships. That seems bizarre. When we’re in the thick of a struggle, it might seem impossible to rejoice.

But from experience, I want to encourage you. What Isaiah 40:29 ( says is true: God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. When we are at our lowest, that’s when God is able to show off.

Our struggles are hard, but God uses them as opportunities to show us His love for us. Our faith comes out stronger. And that can be something to rejoice about.
