God's Purpose for Me II

"After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you." I Peter 5:10 NASB

or in the words of The Living Bible,

"He 'personally will come and pick you up, and set you firmly in place, and make you stronger than ever'." Elyse Fitzpatrick, A Steadfast Heart, (Phillipsburg,N.J.: P&R Publishing,2006), 96.

My purpose? To suffer for a little while, remaining steadfast, and then to be picked up, set firmly in place and made even more steadfast.
