Suffering for a Little While

1 Peter 3: 6-7 ESV
6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

If you have competed in sports you understand the concept of feeling uncomfortable. Whether it’s doing a core workout, hill workout, or running lines. Our brains send messages saying we need to stop or at least slow down. And so an athlete needs to learn to ignore them and push themselves so that their body is able to grow stronger and faster over time. On the day of competition, an athlete must likewise ignore the messages and push themselves to achieve the most out of their body and mind on competition day.

One strategy I used, and in fact, still use today during an unpleasant workout, is that I remind myself that this suffering is only for 45 minutes. “This is the hardest thing you’ll do all day”; that is just a blink of time in this day; you can make it through this.”

James 4:14 ESV
14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
