How about a day of hope! We have trials, for sure, but we are not alone in them. We have God on our side. He is our hope, cheerleader, coach, friend, support, guide…anything we need Him to be. His love knows no bounds when it comes to us. He gave us the most valuable thing He had, His ONLY son.
Here are some verses on trials and what they teach us. God does have a reason for allowing challenges in our lives. Some situations we create ourselves with bad judgement…I know I have done that!…but no matter the reason for our trial, He is there for us, still loving us, every step of every moment of every day.
I hope these encourage your heart:)

We will face persecution and trials…. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 2 Timothy 3:12 NIV
Our life here is not meant to be our reward but a journey to our reward…. Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown. Revelation 2:10 NIV
Enduring patiently has its rewards…. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. Revelation 3:10 NIV
I learned a lot from looking up these scriptures, especially about how many guarantees and promises God has made to us! Hope is never gone, when we realize what our almighty God can do and has already done. I hope He holds you closer than ever and reminds you that you are so loved!
