Romans 5:3,4

When I experience challenges and tough times, I learn to expand my perseverance. By building my ability to handle trials, my character develops into a stronger faith in God. As I lean more into my faith, my hope in the eternal grows. Hope brings life to my soul.

"Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings,
because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
perseverance, character; and character, hope."
(Romans 5:3, 4 NIV)
