God isn’t glorified through our suffering

And set your minds and keep them set on what is above, not on the things that are on the earth.–Colossians 3:2

Many Christians live under the false idea that God wants them to suffer. This creates a nonstop victim mentality.

Suffering is inevitable, but God does not find joy in our suffering. It blesses God when we have a good attitude during our suffering–and He wants us to be victorious!

So why would we choose to remain bitter,angry and wounded or depressed?

There’s one surefire way to overcome suffering with the right attitude:Set your mind, and keep it set, on things above, not on things of the earth. You must be armed with right thinking, or you will give up during hard times.

Set your mind and be fully aware that moving from being a victim to being a victor will not be a quick process. It will take time, but your experience will make you stronger and enable you to help others who are facing similar battles.

Get excited about your future and realize that going through something with God means that you will come out on the other side with a victory that cannot be taken away from you.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
