It’s natural for us to shrink back from any kind of trial; we all wish we could be free of problems and instead live a life of peace and serenity all our days. but life isn’t like this, and we all know that it can radically change even in a matter of seconds. The real question is how we will react. Will we react in anger or despair? Will we lash out in hatred or revenge? Or will we turn to God in faith and seek His help?
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
