Suffering Christians Encouragement for those who are hurting


Reading Biographies

From Randy Alcorn on Facebook:

I encourage you to read biographies of missionaries and reformers, of people such as Martin Luther, William Carey, John Wesley, Charles Spurgeon, Harriet Tubman and countless others. You’ll find the pages riddled with suffering, all of which God used to build their characters and expand their ministries. These stories inspire and challenge us to say no to time-wasting trivia, seize the day and invest in what matters.

If you've read any that encouraged you please let me know. I've read very few.


Quote of the Day: Preparing

Before difficult times come your way, develop habits of studying God’s Word, listening to Christ-centered teaching and music, and reading soul-nourishing literature, both nonfiction and fiction. Daily fill the reservoir from which you can draw when facing difficult times—and helping others face theirs. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly” (Colossians 3:16).

Colossians 1:11-12 NRSV
May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light.
