Consider it joy when you face trials and tribulations. It has been my experience that I am always in one of three places in life as a Christian.  I am either going in to a trial,  in the middle of a trial, or coming out of a trial. The faith of all saints as listed in the book of Hebrews was tested. No test, no testimony. God does not transform us from the outside in, God does it from the inside out. Perhaps there would have been no Psalms of lament if King Saul hadn’t have chased David for many many years. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
