2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.


We are admonished to thank God for all things. James (the half-brother of Jesus) even says to be thankful for the trials and temptations. A grateful spirit is not readily found, but must be cultivated. Remember that every good thing comes from the Father.
