1: Knowing Jesus outweighs everything you could have or lose in this life.
Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him. — Philippians 3:8–9
2: Every trial is helping to prove the genuineness of your faith and joy.
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. — 1 Peter 1:6–7
3: All your pain is preparing you to care for others in their pain.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. — 2 Corinthians 1:3–4
4: Over time, suffering will fuel, not hurt, your hope and joy.
Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. — Romans 5:3–5
5: No suffering can steal what Jesus bought for you.
You joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one. — Hebrews 10:34b
6: Jesus never gets weary of caring for the wearied.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” — Matthew 11:28–30
7: Suffering will give you faith and strength to endure to the end.
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. — James 1:2–4
8: God will pour out His infinite riches to meet your daily needs.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:19
9: Not one ounce of your pain is meaningless but is producing eternal glory for you.
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. — 2 Corinthians 4:16–18
10: All of your suffering will end one day, down to the very last year.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” — Revelation 21:4
