We can use suffering to praise God. The mere act of going on with our daily activities, despite intense pain or deep sorrow, is a living testimony of our love for the Father. As we begin to rely on divine strength, we go beyond the physical limitations of our own earthly abilities. We learn how to live by the spiritual power and passion of our faith.
Jesus often spoke about the force of our faith – even to move mountains. He proclaimed the tremendous might that we have because of God’s authority. Such energy transcends worldly strength because it has no material boundaries.
If we have faith – belief as small as the size of a mustard seed – God can transform even our most difficult, and painful circumstances. He can renew our minds, and enable us to live by what we know, not what we feel. Our tiny act of faith allows us to turn pain into praise.
