Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
I the have friends and family I love and who love me. I have more blessings than I can count. So I should be joyful for the trials that come. Right?
Joyful. . .joyful. . . joyful. . .God is joy.
After my move I wasn't very joyful. Like you have figured I was mad and a little confused. But after a long time with him I see my need to trust God, and when I do that I will have joy.
