This is a tough one, rejoicing as we suffer.
When we read this we can see that whatever we suffer
there is a reason for it, it is not just happenstance.
I don’t think we are to rejoice in the sufferings themselves
but in what they produce, perseverance.
There are rewards when we bear our pains with rejoicing hearts.
I can’t say I humbly accept the trials and tribulations I face
but I am learning to rejoice in the midst of them.
How do you rejoice in spite of your sufferings?
Blessings this day of grace,
