    True. It has been true in my life. However I think sometimes Christians have too small a list as to what constitutes hardship. Some of the greatest examples I know of are those who came from very negative upbringings and weren’t brought up on the faith and had to literally struggle to make it and God’s voice was there and they heeded it without being directly in a faith community!
