The goal after hardship is to come out better than you were before.
Hardships will come, and when they do, they come with pain and struggle. The emotional and physical toll can be overwhelming for a time. But it doesn’t have to be permanent.
Sometimes healing occurs quickly and you feel relief, sometimes healing happens gradually and it isn’t until months or even years later that you realize that you don’t hurt anymore. So the challenge after hardship is to be patient and don’t give up. If you can make it through the first weeks and months, if you can believe that healing is possible then you can get your life back.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
