Hardship as training

Have you ever got to that point in your life where the pressures of life make you think “Why Me?”. Why is God making me go through such a hard time? It doesn’t seem fair!

Hebrews 12:7 helps us understand this. You see your parents let you make mistakes – they don’t always step in to save you from problems. Why? To help you grow, otherwise your mom would still be wiping your bum!

When we go through hard times and God doesn’t take them away, it isn’t because He does not love us. He is training us for a greater future.
