Week 2, Day 2
"Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing." James 1:2-4 AMP
The purposes of trials are for the testing of our faith and James tells us to consider it pure joy. It's a choice! It's a heart-felt decision to choose joy when we face hardships, trials, offenses, illnesses, and so on. Having an attitude of joy will allow us to find the good that God promises us, is really there.
