The NIV version of these verses include the words trial and test. I am undergoing both at the moment. I am aware of the outcome of this current situation, but it just hasn't reached that point as yet. This is developing my perseverance, and building my faith in God that He will keep me through it all.
As much as I don't want to admit it, I am in pain and I am hurting. I don't know how long I will have to endure this but God does and I will leave my heart and soul in His hands.
