Praise God for our suffering

Romans 5, 1-5
..since we have been justified by faith,we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith[ into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Love the sequence:
rejoice in our sufferings
because suffering produces endurance
endurance – character,
character – hope
And Hope does NOT put us to shame.
Because of God's love
poured into our hearts 
through the funnel of
indwelling Holy Spirit.
