Maybe you are blessed right now to be in a sunny season of life, far from trials. If so, be grateful and praise God. But also know that trials will one day enter your life and are the very means God uses to mold us into his image. Whether you’re facing trials now — or preparing for the trials that will eventually come — rejoice, knowing that through every hard thing we suffer in life, we share with Christ.
