Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2 NIV).
How could we know the joy without the suffering? And how could we endure the suffering but that we are warmed and carried on the breast of God? -Desmond M. Tutu-
