When troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that 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 perfect and complete, needing nothing.
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
James 1:2, Ro 8:18, 8:28
Trouble in our lives is inevitable. When it comes I choose to trust in you and your presence in my life. Help me to see it as an opportunity to grow. Let your endurance get me through the circumstance and make me a more healthy person as a result.
