Be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while. These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold-and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. 1 Peter 1:6-7
It is in the midst of suffering, when we choose to trust instead of fear, that we reveal genuince faith. To accept rather than complain. To forgive rather than seek revenge. To choose humility insteadof proving we were right. The curtain is pulled back and we have the opportunity for our faith to be proved genuine. (Nancy Guthrie: one year book of Hope)
Help me Lord to trust in you during this time of testing.
