No buts. It says in Isaiah 48:10 that we are refined in the furnaces of affliction. We must go through fire to be made pure and find peace in God alone. Jesus never said it would be easy. In fact, He reminds us in Matthew 10:22 that people will hate us because we follow him, but we will not be afraid because we will be raised up.
It is time to truly look at ourselves, at our hearts, and see that we can stand those fires, no matter how much they burn. God is with us. God is able. We just have to let Him.
"The world promises you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for GREATNESS."
Pope Benedict XVI
