You need to consider it all joy; yes, all joy. It is a sheer gift whatever you are passing through now. Whatever you are enduring now or whatever to come your way, it is not without purpose in the sovereignty of God. If you will let Christ be your life, and if you will have a submissive mind towards God, you will have joy: “Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” (James 1:2-4, TMB). That’s it!!!
