God is in control. He is sovereign … even in our pain, even in our troubles. Through it all, his love is transforming us, perfecting us, completing us.
Dear brothers and sisters, 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.
