I Peter 4:12-13,19 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial that you are suffering, as tho something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
These verses are talking about people being persecuted because they are Christians, but I’m going to take a little liberty and apply it to Ryan’s suffering and take comfort in knowing that God’s glory will be revealed because of it. Praise His name…ALWAYS!
