Tribulation a Source of Joy
Not only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance, character, and character, hope.
[Rom 5:3-4 NET]
Then let us wait the’ appointed day,
Nor call this world our home;
To pilgrims in a foreign land,
Afflictions needs must come.
Who rule the world, o’errules their end,
They destined are for good;
And bear the saints to realms of rest,
Though mighty as a flood.
