4In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind. 5We have been beaten, been put in prison, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured sleepless nights, and gone without food.

Father, I have endures so little in my life.  I have had it easy.  Yet, in the troubles I have been in I hope and pray that I have given You glory.  And I am sure the troubles of my life are not over.  As a matter of fact, there are likely more ahead of me than behind me.  Please Lord, please, use them to show me to be a true minister of You.  Keep me true and hold me fast.  Be my rock and my strength.  Only for Your glory Lord, only for Your glory.  *2Corinthians6*
