"I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead."
Philippians 3:10-11

One of the greatest things I see regarding the way Jesus endured the pain and suffering He experienced on the cross was His ability to maintain His focus on something that gave Him joy.

There will never be a problem or predicament I face that will compare to the agony and anguish that Jesus withstood.

I am without excuse if I complain, grumble or resist any situation God allows to occur in my life. God’s discipline in my life happens so that He can transform me from living life man’s way to living life His way.

I pray that He will help me maintain my focus on Him whenever I face any form of adversity, no matter how difficult it may seem.
