Notes

My mission is to convince you biblically and from the lives of believers that suffering is not an accidental or incidental happening in an otherwise happy life; NO, suffering is actually a pre-ordained and redeemed path on this faith journey on planet earth.

Acts 5:40-41

And when they had called in the apostles, they beat them and charged them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. 41 Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name.

1 Peter 4:12-13

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.
