“The only way to learn strong faith is to endure great trials.”
– George Muller (English Evangelist)

How encouraging would it be for us to really just learn this? Trials are hard, messy, and ugly, but this is the place where my faith is cultivated and most evident. Why? You need enduring faith. It puts it through the fire and to the test. What will come of our faith as we live out our lives and inevitably face numerous trials that may try to make us less reliant on our Lord and Savior?
