"And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord they God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no."
I pondered on how this verse gives the answer to the question "Why do bad things happen to good people?" God needs a proven people, and this is how he proves what is in their hearts. I have known hard days, but if it was not for them I would have never come to know the Lord. Enduring to the end is the best part of this earth existence. It is how I come to know my Savior. I would not change a thing.
