August: Strength While Suffering

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened. Helen Keller

Romans 5:3-5 We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.
