"If we trust in His sovereignty, we will view the things that happen to us, not as obstacles that keep us from getting what we want, but as opportunities to depend more desperately on God to meet our need. Hardships, trials, and persecution will reveal the genuineness of your conversion and the true depth of your faith. Trying times and adverse circumstances will draw the truly converted to God instead of driving them away from God." — Mark Howell

"God has designed suffering to work for us and not against us. He has designed it to change us, to consume our dross and refine our gold. He will supply his all-sufficient grace through fiery trials of life, and those trials are actually evidence that God is for us and not against us." — James Grant
