When you are undergoing a trial or tribulation, do you ask for the next to be more difficult? We are meant to be in this world but not of it. We are meant to live a life filled with His joy and peace. But you cannot reach this state without purification. He is not trying to punish you when you undergo trials. He is purifying you, making you like Him, to bring you closer to Him. All He does is done from Love, for He is Love.
