Discomfort Favorable

Often when we are uncomfortable, the first thing we choose to do is to complain.  It is exactly at this time, things surface in our thoughts that need to be handled, addressed and released.  If they stay buried, how are they overcome?  To me, it is a reminder that these very obstacles are hand-tailored for my very own spiritual growth.  It is also a reminder that I am nothing without God.

2 Corinthians 1:8-9 reads “We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered  in the province of Asia.  We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.  Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death.  But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.”
