 2 Corinthians 4:17 

For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 

As big as our problems may seem, we are always bound to find someone whose problems are bigger. In some small way it is comforting to know our troubles won't last long in comparison to eternity. Yet, the glory we gain for our troubles is much greater and lasts forever. Be consoled in knowing your hardships make Christ's suffering for you even more personal, He knows what you are walking through. When your troubles get too big, look beyond this life and remember "all things shall work together for good for those that love God" Romans 8:28 and " He will complete the good work that He began in you" Phil 1:6 

So trust God, have faith, and believe God's word. Giving thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ... 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Thanking Him for salvation, the hope of a finished work and for being able to have the confidence that all things work together for good when you love God, by obeying His commandments..
