When you go through difficult things, it’s an opportunity to see the goodness of God shine in the darkness. You see Him lift you up, you see Him restore you, you see Him promote you and heal you. When you have this history with God, you don't get discouraged by every difficulty. You don’t fall apart because of a disappointment. You don’t get upset because people are talking about you. You know that God brought you through the darkness in the past, and He is going to bring you through in the future! He makes sure through all life’s difficulties that you’re still standing.
