The difficulty to find the necessary faith
The reality is that when hardships enter our life, particularly through sickness and death, it is often difficult to find the necessary faith to endure the pain and suffering these hardships bring. We must cultivate our faith in God before we encounter them. This is why Ecclesiastes says, “Remember your creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come, and the years draw near when you will say, ‘I have no pleasure in them’; before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars are darkened and the clouds return with the rain” (Ecc 12:1-2).
