My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trial.
Trials are those things that happen to us that we could probably do without. But the thing is, you can’t do without trials. You see, trials are what build us up—or at least they’re suppose to build us up. It’s when we let them put us down that the trials turn out to be a bad thing. You see, trials are meant to strengthen us, not break us down.
One way to keep your spirits up is to count the Joys and Blessings in the midst of the bad. It isn’t as easy as it could be, but I guarantee it will get you through the hard things a lot quicker than wallowing in them.
Count It All Joy, my friend.
