Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
This verse is so clear... yet so tough for me to actually live out. I want so bad to not get angry when things don't go my way.. but to find joy in the fact that Christ is strengthening my faith and making me more mature and complete in Him.
So tough... but so worth it.
