Can you remember a time growing up that you learned a valuable life lesson?  That might bring back a painful memory or uncomfortable situation.  You see change itself is uncomfortable.  Yet, that is exactly how God teaches us.  Many times we call these trials and the Bible promises we will have them.  James 1, verse 2 says to consider it joy when we encounter trials.  Why?  "knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."  Why does God give us trials?  So we will be complete and lack nothing.  That's love.  It's a tough love, but it is pure LOVE.  Let's find our Joy in the Love behind the trial.
