My Favourite verse...

Right now my favourite verse is 
Psalm 27: 13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
         That I would see the goodness of the LORD
         In the land of the living.

But take a look at the next verse too do we have hope in trials? Through the Lord's strengthening and just plain old 'waiting'!
 14 Wait on the LORD;
         Be of good courage,
         And He shall strengthen your heart;
         Wait, I say, on the LORD!

Do not Fret....

Our trials are designed to wean us off fretting as we rest in the Lord....

 Psalm 37 (NKJ)

A Psalm of David.
 1 Do not fret because of evildoers,
         Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
         And wither as the green herb.
 3 Trust in the LORD, and do good;
         Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
 4 Delight yourself also in the LORD,
         And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
 5 Commit your way to the LORD,
         Trust also in Him,

         And He shall bring it to pass.
 6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
         And your justice as the noonday.
 7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;
         Do not fret
because of him who prospers in his way,
         Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
         Do not fret—it only causes harm.
