My friends, be glad, even if you have a lot of trouble. You know that you learn to endure by having your faith tested. But you must learn to endure everything, so that you will be completely mature and not lacking in anything.
We are to be transformed in our thinking so that trials are opportunities to identify with Christ. Trials do not cause dismay, but are actually helping us. God's ways are beyond our comprehension, but he helps us understand and obey Truth. I love the reaction we are encouraged to have when difficulties arise because it is not natural for us to be joyful, but it is the best way to deal with challenges.
