It is understandable to perceive trials as subtracting events in our lives. But faith estimates trials quite differently. We are to “count it all joy”. When you are suffering it doesn’t make sense to think of the suffering as beneficial. But everything we go through is for our benefit. Eventually it will add up. The sum of all our conflicts and afflictions is how God transforms tests and trials to become ingredients in the personal recipe of our own testimonies. So, one…this trial is about done; count it all joy. Two…look what God has brought me through; count it all joy. Three…from these chains I will be free; count it all joy. Listen now.
