“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast” (1 Peter 5:10).

Over the last five years, I’ve felt weak, ashamed, embarrassed, and too beaten down to stand. Ten+ diagnoses have stripped my identity—taken away hobbies and energy I once had. My mental space has become a blur. Foggy and shaken. Confused and riddled with pain. Spiritually, I’ve doubted. I’ve asked, “God, where are you?” and received what felt like the absence of His presence. I’ve felt too fragile, lost, and defeated to get back to who I once was. I’ve felt guilty for being exhausted. Not strong enough.

Did anyone ever ask me to be? Have you felt this way?

In whispers, I hear Christ’s call to endure the suffering. I wonder if it’s worth it. To stand firm amid my pain. To keep hoping. Believing. Holding on. 

The pain is real. But I’ve also searched the Scriptures and found three things that give me the courage to face another day. The endurance suffering brings doesn’t steal your ability, rather it refines you and when you recognize the value of being weak, you can embrace three promises God’s given: abiding, completeness, and restoration.
