God is sovereign over every trial you will ever experience. Trials are opportunities to grow and learn. God can use your trials to make you more like his Son, Jesus.
Genesis 3:17-19: “To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat of it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.’”
Romans 8:28: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
James 1:12: “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
