“After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you” (1 Peter 5:10).

In this broken world it is inevitable that life will bring an event of such pain and intensity we would have never thought it possible. In contrast to what God is producing in his eternal glory, this present suffering will be only for a little while. This isn’t to diminish our very real pain but, rather, to encourage us to be prepared and disciplined enough to persevere when the unexpected fiery trials come upon us.
