Personally, I hate hardships. But that is simply as a worldly human being who is fallen and in need of grace.
What I am learning now is from the Bible, I am no longer simply fallen, and grace has been bestowed on me as a result of my relationship with Christ. So I lean on the Bible for understanding hard times as I have no experience with them other than constant grumbling!
Romans 5:3-5 King James Version (KJV)
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
