Encouragement for Your Faith
One of the most redeeming things about learning the hard way is helping others learn the easy way. I call this recycled strength, a term inspired by 2 Corinthians 1:4:
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. (NIV)
Recycled strength happens when God’s strength carries Christians through adversities, and they pass what He’s gifted them on to others. If life has worn you down and you could use a big dose of hope and encouragement, you’re in the right place!
