Accepting difficulties as part of God's loving provision

Letting others know by my words and actions how they have benefitted my life.  I Corinthians 4:7

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29
