Meeting our Trials with Joy


The Bible states in James 1:2, "Count it all joy when you meet trials of various kinds." 

Now, I don't know who you hang out with, but most people I know, including myself, don't really see a trial as an occasion for joy. My flesh wants to whine and cry and quickly escape.

However, saved or unsaved, we live in a fallen world and there is just no escaping it. There are a lot of trials that each of us will face. So, can we really, "count it all joy?" Can I really be glad when my life takes a major turn for the worse and have no idea what the heck I am going to do?
