But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold. (Job 23:10, NKJV)

Sometimes things come into our lives and there seems no purpose, no sense in them. We wonder how any good can come out of them. We may at the time be overwhelmed. We may feel a sense of desperation. We may find ourselves questioning God and His goodness to us. "No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way." (Hebrews 12:11, NLT)

James urges his readers, " when troubles 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, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing." (James 1:2-4, NLT)
