Josephs story exemplifies this; from his brothers selling him, to being wrongfully arrested. Despite the trials Joseph faced, he still trusted God and God used him even in the storm. When you read the story you realise that there’s nothing romantic about his story. However, you also see that Joseph has that insistent hope that God will turn his situation around.
That is what faith is, it pushes against all reason and logic, and holds on to Christ even when all else is falling apart around you.
