The Bible says we should not consider life’s trials strange (1 Peter 4:12, NKJV). Pray that you would see every trial as an opportunity to grow in faith. Record the faithfulness of God in a journal—it will be a beautiful story for your children and grandchildren to read one day.
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” James 1:2–4 (NKJV)
