A quote from my book says "Life is a mix of struggles and victories. It is never just one or the other but an ebb and flow of both"
It is a truth that can not be escaped by anyone.
The 2 always coexist.
We wouldn't know happiness if we never experienced sadness; strength without knowing weakness; healing without being broken...
Joy and pain..sunshine and rain...
Both are needed to produce growth.
God uses every circumstance whether positive or negative to produce fruit in our lives. As Romans 8 tells us...He works all things together for our good. Nothing ever gets wasted.
Sing in the rain. You will get wet but you will dry. Bask in the hot sun. Be careful not to burn. Appreciate both. They are both gifts.
