Philippians 1:27-30 NIV
Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel  without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God.  For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him,  since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.
Seek the perspective that suffering for Jesus is a privilege and not a punishment.

Our suffering being a Christian is evidence that we are being saved.
Are you an admirer of Jesus or a disciple of Jesus?
In addition to being given the privilege of believing in Jesus, we have been given the privilege of suffering for Jesus. Suffering shouldn’t be a punishment, but a privilege.
Continue to come back to the cross over and over and over again, God will heal you from the damage sin has done.
