when you are thankful for even trials and tribulations, you are in turn joyful....and joy is the whole beings attitude of "thank you" to God. would you wish to deprive yourself and God this rare joy that is available and free for the taking.
God never promised us immunity from difficulties....but he did offer peace in difficulties. his guidance is often by shut doors. our finite minds can not fully comprehend the divine mind.
this life we have here, thankfully, is full of OPPORTUNITIES for us to prove our unselfish heart and our love of God...by helping to lift another soul out of the sea of sin, or disease, or doubt into which man has fallen.
