Transformed by Suffering

Transformed by Suffering

St. Patrick followed in the footsteps of Joseph and Daniel, being shaped as a leader by a period of enslavement and confinement. Over and over again, we see God using suffering to refine people. He uses trials as a call to seek Him more deeply. As we open ourselves to learn the lessons He has for us in struggle and suffering, we are transformed into men and women who lead in humility and God-confidence.

These [trials] have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.—1 Peter 1:7

Prayer: Father God, it can be hard to trust you when trials come, but I want my life to exalt You. So, use my trials to transform me into a person who trusts You, and who leads with God-given humility and confidence. I ask in the name of Jesus, who transformed death into life, amen.
