Have you noticed that life is not always fair, and sometimes we suffer unjust pain? How do we respond to the difficulties and trials that come our way?
We have the freedom of choosing our responses to various trials. Our joyful, trusting response to what God allows to come our way contributes to perseverance, maturity and holiness.
James 1:2 -4(NIV)
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, 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.
1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
