We should work hard to preserve the characteristics of truthfulness and integrity. Doing so requires trusting God rather than our own schemes during adversity. -Dr. Adam Dooley
Do not complain about your problems. The adversity you face today is strengthening you for more difficult situations you will face in the future.
If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is too small. -Proverbs 24:10
Some days we face a lot of pressure and get discouraged. We can desist from our work and then despair. This is a sign of lack of faith in God, and in ourselves. How are we to face big challenges if the little challenges wear us out?
Our faith in God is what strengthens our soul.
Be of good courage therefore, and He shall strengthen the heart. All you that hope in the Lord. -Psalm 31:24
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. -Philippians 3:14
