James 1:2-4 (NLT):
brothers and sisters, whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character and ready for anything.
We do not like it when we have trials – it normally involves pain. However, we grow the most during trials. If we look at trials as “learning experiences” our whole life would change!
Lord, I ask that You change the way I view trials. I also ask that You help me learn & grow from them. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
