In tough times

Christians, we may pray for easy lives but Jesus offers us crosses. In that light, Team Swap has posted a helpful essay for Christians on trusting God and growing where we're planted:
It takes no faith to cling to God when you are self assured, self sustaining, self reliant, and self righteous. In the tough times self wanes and God waxes. In those tough times real friends arrive while others flee. In those tough times pride falls and knees bend.
Amen. I happen to know, by the way, that the anonymous author of that essay is one of those Christians going through tough times of his own right now. He's also one who has proven himself faithful during those times.
