The Lord disciplines the one He loves

“5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,
 “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
    and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
  6 because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
    and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”

NIV Hebrews 12:5-6; KJV Hebrews 12:5-6

We all go through hard times, but everyone reacts differently. When I didn’t know Jesus I would worry and fret, and I would just feel down and hopeless. When Jesus entered my life all that has changed. It’s not that I stopped having hard times and struggles, they are still here at times. It is my whole attitude and my outlook that has changed. I now have hope and I know that the struggles are temporary, for my Lord will get me through it and it the process he will teach me a valuable lesson. Dear friend, do not forget that Lord is ever with you! If he disciplines you, it is because He loves you more than words can express. ♥
