Miserable and Happy: At The Same Time!

The conclusion from a short blog post over at Acts 29 worth the entire read:
Don’t be a whiner, quitter, or baby and quit pouting or being surprised about “how hard” it is to do what you are doing. Of course it is. You are limited as a fallen human in a fallen world. Learn to cultivate and create…all the while, being miserable. If you can thrive and stay on mission, especially through the worst of circumstances, you are preparing to be a game changer, a true leader, who can adapt, adjust, and endure.

Jesus is still our perfect rescuer and our relentless pursuit of Him is still our greatest joy.
I love it =)! Our joy is proof that Jesus is our treasure (Matthew 13:44). Our misery is proof that this world isn't our home, that the Bridegroom has been taken away from us, and that we long for His coming (Matthew 9:15). The way Paul put it:
[We are] as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing...
2 Corinthians 6:10
