"…when troubles…of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow…so let it grow…"
James 1:2-4 NLT
We may not be able to control our circumstances, but we can control how we think about our circumstances. Trials are a part of life and they can produce something in us like patience, maturity, perseverance, etc.
