2 Timothy 1:12
"Which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me." ESV
The Lord told us that if we follow Him, we will suffer all kinds of problems and trials. There is no shame in this suffering, only joy in suffering for Him. The suffering is temporary. We trust that the Lord will keep all that we have given over to Him until we are with Him in eternity.
Heavenly Father, O how many times we forget that we are living in a cursed world, enemy territory. We are surprised that terrible and difficult things come into our lives. Help us to stay strong and remember that You will take care of us and everything we have committed to You. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
