The hard waves of suffering are how our God changes us for His purposes. It's how He chisels away at what does not look like Him and shapes us by His transforming grace. Can we choose Joy in the midst of waves after waves of pain and suffering?   —  Count it All Joy, John M Perkins
Joy does not come easily to many. A good portion of our waking & even sleeping hours are spent being worried or anxious about something. In James 1:2 "when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy." Our first line of response will be typically fear, panic, confusion, loss of faith instead of experiencing great joy. Yet, the bible is clear that joy even in pain is something that believers are expected to experience on a regular basis. Joy is a Choice.
