When adversity comes it appears to be a wolf in sheep's clothing. Something brining gloom, destruction, and misery. Let's step back and turn it around. Could it be possible that adversity could be a sheep in wolves's clothing? It is may appear awful on the outside at first glance but as we stay with it for awhile we start to see that it is really a lamb sent to help us.
Here are some quotes that I have loved that explain it far better than I. Enjoy.
DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS 121:7-8
7. My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be for a small moment;
8. And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shall triumph over all they foes.
20. And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers.
