Have you learned the secret of counting your blessings and downplaying your struggles?

The Spirit of God extenuates (downplays) evils and crosses, and magnifies and amplifies all mercies; and makes all mercies seem to be great, and all afflictions seem to be little. But the devil goes quite contrary,..he lessens God's mercies, and amplifies evil things. Thus, a godly man wonders at his cross that it is not more, a wicked man wonders his cross is so much.."
