My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
To be joyful when we come to a trial can be difficult but through the grace of God we can!! I have been dealing with some medical issues and making some life changing descisions and being joyful through the whole process has been difficult but through God just being there for me and giving me strength has helped tremendously.
The commentary in my Bible for verse 4....
1:4 the potential a Christian woman has for maturity relates to the realization of her God-given destiny. She is striving to reach a goal that only God can enable her to achieve.
God will give us the strength we need to do the things he wants and desire us to do.
