3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope (Romans 5:3-4)
In order to have a testimony, you must be put through a test. God prepares us throughout our lives to be vessels to be sent out into the world to be a blessing to other people. When you are in the midst of a trial rejoice knowing that God has already given you the victory. Once your prosperous, use your prosperity to guide others through their hardships. We win souls and maintain salvation with unselfish love and provide hope to the hopeless.
