“…when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
It is good to avoid trials. God has put within our hearts the desire for self preservation. For example, we instinctively duck when an object flies toward us.
Yet for all that trials are what make us better Christians.
Adversity is a friend because it drives us toward the infinite resources of our Father in heaven.
So when you cannot remove the thing that makes you sorrowful, use it as a stepladder toward heaven.
Always remember that when the Lord places you in the furnace of affliction He is in it with you.
Trials can make us think God is far away. The fact is that He is never closer than when you are in distress.
