Yes! Choose to be refined and not reduced by things that happen to you. The fire hurts and burns but my God does it strengthen you? Zechariah 13:9 I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'These are my people,' and they will say, 'The LORD is our God.'"
