2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NKJV)
16Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
18while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Everything has a purpose in life is the first “E” in believe. It is so easy to get caught up in blaming God. Why did I lose my job? Why did we have troubles with our bills? Why did I get sick? We have so many questions, but we forget to be thankful to God.
Why give thanks when we do not like the result? God never allows us to go through more than we can handle. Our troubles are quite small and not everlasting. Our relationship with Jesus is everlasting. We need to give each day to God and be thankful for all things that happen. We learn from our mistakes and adversity. Anyone can be a good winner. The true winner is the one with their head held high and you can never tell what they just went through.
We need to give God the glory and share this knowledge. We go through good and bad times. We can help others from our experiences. We never know when we can share that testimony of faith and it can be an encouragement to others. If we help just one person through our trials then it was used for His glory.
People all around you see how you handle things in your work-life, home life, and free time. We can be witnesses by how we handle ourselves. Remember as God says in Philippians 4 to never worry about anything, but pray about everything.
