2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (James 1:2-4 NIV)
It is not easy to look into the face of adversity and thank God for his provision. No, we want to know when we will be delivered from the adversity, and we want to know now!
However, when life, all of life, is looked at as a lesson to learn and lean on our faith then even adversity can take on a different meaming.
Allowing God to work through our adversity and show us His good plan.
