"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness." -James 1:2-3
Are you going through some things and asking, "God, why are you doing this to me?" or "Why would a loving God do these things?" God does things for a reason. Maybe He is testing you to make your faith stronger or using you to do greater things. Whatever it may be, know that God understands your suffering, and He will make it better when the right time comes.
The Bible says, in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." The Lord has already planned out your life, and He will not waste it.
Everyone's life has a purpose, however, not everyone chooses to follow the path God has given them.
