"Consider it all joy, my brethern, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."
I need to read this verse daily =) Sometimes the endurance is the hardest part. Like running a marathon..could you run a marathon if you didn't know how long it was or how tough it would be? What if the only guarentee was that you would be stronger? That's what faith is...its the sustaining power that fuels our endurance. And with endurance comes growth and maturity that will allow us to handle situations the way God wants us to handle them. Without allowing feelings or selfishness to rule. So God wants us to rejoice in tough times and praise him through it because when we give him glory we will see glory in the end result!
