How to rejoice in suffering

One of the least-popular requirements of Christianity is the act of suffering. In his letter to the church at Philippi, Ch.1:29, the Apostle Paul puts it very plainly, "For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in Him but also suffer for His sake."

To achieve something, you have to remove all distractions that are blocking you from making progress. Fear stops most people from getting what they want - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, of the unknown, of disappointment. Then, of course, the "what if" fears always fuel these hindrances.
