This post describes the reasons for the adversity that we face in this life.  We, as Christians, are not in our real home yet.  The evil and suffering that we face and experience is purposeful; even though we may not know or understand the purpose at this time.  One day, we will  know.  Meanwhile, even though it’s very hard (sometimes extremely painful and sad) to go through them, they do turn out to be purposeful.

There is a song out that helps describe this phenomenon.  It’s called, “Maybe It’s OK.” by We Are Messengers.



Copy of post:


You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

For the peach lover, there is nothing quite like the sweet scent and taste of a ripe peach. However, a peach tree requires a certain number of cold days during the winter to produce quality peaches.

You can advance through your adversities because your afflictions likewise produce spiritual growth. Genuine spiritual fruit is unlikely to fully develop unless you are put into strenuous places. In adversity you grow in grace. Grace, God’s undeserved blessing, is hollow apart from suffering. Its richness, its strength, its nourishment, are released in adversity. Grace helps the weak to stand, the bruised to heal, the barren to blossom. In trouble you learn to “be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 2:1).

You also grow in your knowledge of God. Paul wanted to know God above all. That intimate relationship blossomed in jail rooms, not hotel rooms. Adversity drives you into face–to–face dealings with the Father.

You grow, too, in your love for God’s Word. David said, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes” (Ps. 119:71 kjv). Spiritual fruit is watered by the tears of adversity.

Thank You for Your grace in times of trouble. When I am weak, help me stand. Where I am barren, create blossoms. When I am bruised, heal me. Let the tears of my adversity water the spiritual fruit You want to produce in my life.[1]

Talk Wisdom's goal is to defend the tenets and values of Biblical Christian faith. We defend our Constitutional Republic and Charters of Freedom, especially when speaking out against destructive social and political issues. As followers of our Savior and Lord, we should boldly stand up for Jesus Christ in our present circumstances. He is our Savior, Lord, and King, and His love needs to be shed abroad in our hearts and in our world - now.
