God does not allow suffering in your life to punish you. Fighting through emotional pain as you depend upon the mercy of God, will help you acquire the empathy and understanding needed to relate with others when you notice they are hurting.
Living for Christ can be lonely. There will be many times where you feel that no one cares about you and your problems. Life is not fair. Satan wants to use your emotions against you. He wants you to live with thoughts of desperation and resentment.
Your relationship with Christ should dictate how you respond to your circumstances. Remember that you are a constant redemption project. God is continually preparing you for Kingdom work. God sees you for who He wants you to be, not for who you think you are (James 1: 2-5).
Allow God to create you in His image. God called Abraham the father of many nations before his promised son Isaac was born (Hebrews 11:1 & 11:6)
God will place you in situations that seem impossible. Anyone can win when the odds are favorable for victory. Be a person who refuses to lose, even when your circumstances tell you defeat is imminent.
