The most important thing to know and believe is that God is in a good mood. He loves me and has my best interest in mind. Jesus wants the best for me.
I do suffer a little. I know some people who suffer a lot. Jesus promised us that in this world we would have problems.
So … I suffer a little.
I have unlimited joy in the goodness of God.
The ratio isn’t even fair to compare. If joy equals 100 then, compared to that, suffering might be .0000001.
You paid careful attention to the way we lived among you, and determined to live that way yourselves. In imitating us, you imitated the Master. Although great trouble accompanied the Word, you were able to take great joy from the Holy Spirit!—taking the trouble with the joy, the joy with the trouble. 1 Thessalonians 1:5-6 ~Apostle Paul
