Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
Our pepper grinder wasn't putting forth much of a product. Tightening the screw on the top did the trick. The added pressure produced a much nicer chunk of pepper! Glimmering with delight over a successful solution to my pepper mill problem, I stopped to think of my own life.
God has produced some of the best changes in my life by allowing me through the grinder!
