Sometimes you can't be happy, you just have to endure

Romans 15:4 4For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

I have a friend who is going through a great pain, and maybe you as you read this are going through a great pain. There is no way to be happy. The pain never leaves your mind and you ache inside. During those times there is only one answer, endure. It is not easy and I do not pretend to know everything there is about enduring, but it is the only way. Keep going, one day at a time. Clinging to those people that you love, clinging to those parts of life that you enjoy, and then you do it again the next day.

Let Scriptures do there work of encouraging you to endure. Let the Scriptures speak to you and pray for you. Let Godly, wise preachers and teachers speak the Scriptures to your soul. It will take time to restore your soul, even though your life will never be the same. You can endure, you can be encouraged, you can be restored.

I love you and I pray for you
