I can't say I have found this to be very easy. So often the trials are what has left me lacking in joy instead of feeling joy. I really want to change that in my life. I want to be excited about the growth that I get to experience, realizing that God has things under control and that He is continually molding me and working in my life to make me to be a vessel that He can more effectively use for His kingdom.
So I want to be joyful in the trials too!
#677 I am thankful for having experienced health problems because it does cause me to grow and be more understanding of others.
#678 Going without a dishwasher for quite a few months. It has provided much prayer time for me while I hand wash the dishes.
And I want to continue to be thankful for and find joy in the many neat things that God blesses my life with each day!
