Going through times of struggle can eclipse the endurance required to run a marathon.

But God, who is the giver of life, can give you the endurance and strength needed to weather any storm. Relying on him will get you through and give you times of joy that boggle the mind. For how could someone experience joy in the midst of great trials?
