God Has Good Reasons For Putting Us Through Challenging Times
If God is making you sick, or poor, or miserable in some way, He's always got a very good reason for doing that. Maybe, your present difficult circumstances are helping you to pay off some sort of old spiritual debt, from a previous lifetime? Maybe, it's encouraging you to dig deep, and to tap into reservoirs of emotional strength and spiritual power that you never even dreamed you had?
Maybe, you needed to be challenged in order to learn a particular soul lesson, or make some huge, necessary changes to your life, or get out of a damaging spiritual rut? Who knows?
The point is, God is never just randomly hurting you or punishing you, even when he sends some painful circumstances your way. The more you try to look for God behind your difficult circumstances, the easier it will be to get through your challenges in one piece, and the more real God will get.
