Something that I have been thinking about recently is why we have to go through trials. I came across this scripture which I thought answered it very well. This scripture is found in Romans Chapter 5 Verses 3-5 which says:
"(3) And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
(4) And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
(5) And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
(Mormon Channel of no trial is ever wasted)
Whenever we have these trials it's for our own benefit we gain so much from the many experiences we have in our life. I can feel God's love for me through my trials as I rely on the Holy Ghost for comfort and guidance. I know I must be patient and I know that I'm going to go through my own hard times, but I know that I'm being taken care of and God loves me very much and makes that known unto me. I have felt this when my grandfather had passed away, I was very sad and with the Holy Ghost I was able to push forward as I felt God's love for me. The Holy Ghost also comforted me by reminding me that I will see him again after this life. Having this great blessing has helped me much in my life and brings me much hope reading this and I know that even when things are bad, these experiences are for my good to help me grow.
Can you feel God's love for you, through your experiences in life?
