This quote is true. We all, our grandchildren included, have faced, are facing and/or will face tough times. While at the time they are not fun . . . after all, they are "tough times", there typically does come a point where we are able to see the "flower" which comes as a result of the tough times.
If you are experiencing tough times, be encouraged. God loves you! He will bring good from these tough times. Think about the past and remember how God has been faithful and know He will continue to be faithful to you. Look at His promise in Romans 8:28, 35, 37, 38 -
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him . . . Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? . . .God loves us! Nothing will separate us from His love; nothing! Be encouraged and encourage your grandchildren with this truth as well. Consider starting a "Faith History Journal". Write how God has shown His faithfulness and His love to you in the past. Write what He is doing today to show His faithfulness and love to you. Put it where you - and others - are able to see it, remember how God has never left you and be encouraged!
