It's comforting to really believe things will work out okay…even on a day like Good Friday, with so much suffering and pain. When nothing made sense and everything was hard, God worked it out for good—bringing the greatest blessing mankind will ever receive! We can believe Friday was good because of the result it brought, not because of what happened at the time.

I know after I have gone through a really hard time, I've looked back and thought that I wouldn't even be half the person I am now if that wouldn't have happened. Haven't many of us experienced this?
Trusting Through Trouble
Don't we wish we could just grow in good times? But we only seem to really grow during hard times. I think it's because it's during those times that we really press into God and go to a deeper level in our relationship with Him. Because we have to. It's our only choice if we want to make it through the difficulty. When we trust God, He gives us the comfort of knowing that He can work bad things out for our good. There are usually two sides to everything. The cross has two: a crucifixion side and a resurrection side.
And Jesus had to endure one side to get to the other. But if He hadn't endured, then we'd all still be left without a Savior and no forgiveness of our sins. Like Jesus, we have to endure bad things.
To endure means to outlast the devil; to be steadfast long enough to let the trial do whatever it's going to do in our lives and get from one side of the cross to the other. Now, we don't just go from Friday to Sunday. We have to learn to endure Saturday, which I think is sometimes the hardest to do. We'll call it the middle. In everything, there's a beginning, an end, and a middle. The beginning is sometimes a little bit exciting because it's a new thing.
And the end is certainly exciting because it's where we experience the victory. But, oh…that middle! The Saturdays may be even harder than the Fridays because on Saturday, we're in the grave and we're not sure what's going to happen next. Most of the time, we don't know how long the middle's going to last, and although God knows…He's not telling.
Isn't He great at keeping secrets? So we need to remember that when we're going through the middle of something, we can be assured Sunday always comes after Friday. When we do, we will enjoy the resurrection benefits and blessings that come on Sunday. So, I want to remember that Jesus endured the cross because He knew what was waiting on the other side of it. In our daily lives, we are going to have to endure some things, and we're going to face some hard times. But the only way to do it is to go through it.
Man, I can still feel exactly what that felt like. And are we even sure we want to? Yes, these can be difficult, uncertain days …days that make the high dive seem like a piece of cake. So the question is, how do we really trust God during difficult times? We worry a lot. We tend to have very little joy on a daily basis. I know I would. Mark So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind although other boats followed.

But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. Be still! Do you still have no faith? The disciples were absolutely terrified. First, what does it look like to fully trust God? Jesus, of course. How did He do this? It was the sleep of a man whose conscience was clear and whose work was well-done. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
