Tough Life

lucky dogA hand-lettered sign nailed to a telephone pole said, “Lost dog with three legs, blind in left eye, missing right ear, tail broken and recently castrated. Answers to the name of Lucky.”

Maybe you’ve had a time when you felt like Lucky. Sometimes life seems to beat us down and leave us wounded and hurting. It makes you wonder what God has in mind to allow you to go through such suffering. It’s often difficult to see the purpose of trials and tribulations.

We may not get all the answers we would like to have, but the Bible does give us some advice and encouragement for troublesome times. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.”—James 1:2-3.
