for some reason ive been praying that God teach me to suffer for him. since before i came here. every time i prayed it, i'd be like scared that i was praying it, but i would pray it anyway. i dunno why i prayed it. but today God reminded me that he IS going to teach me to suffer for him. but thats later. i guess theres a time for everything, then.

  2. Suffering for His name like...when we read about the Bible, it sounds SO INCREDIBLY awesome! But in real life, I think it's really hard to actually rejoice while suffering...and to remember that it's for His name's sake...

  4. i agree with GazelleTrek that it will be very difficult to rejoice while suffering. your main focus is on the agony u're experiencing. but after your suffering is over, you will be so happy that it happened. Like your mom's boss, you suffered a heart attack and went into a depression for 2 years 9 months later. he was so happy that he got to experience it.

    Psalm 30: 6-12

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  5. i dont think the point is to rejoice WHILE suffering. i think the point is to rejoice IN suffering. big diff. course you dont rejoice while suffering, but to know that through your suffering you are bringing glory to God that would be impossible otherewise, that is truly cause for joy. staying longsighted, i guess, is the key to being able to rejoice in suffering? rom 5:3

  6. but in the bible you don't really see example of Praying God to suffer. Suffering would eventally come during a life time anyway. My mom suffered cancer for 12 years, but she rejoiced in between, grateful with God's loving care.

  7. suffer for his sake, is what i mean. he leads me to pray it. i would never wish any such thing on myself because i want to suffer. thats... lame.
