Thanks, but No Thanks

I'm reading a daily Bible and yesterday began my reading of the book of Job. Even though I've read it several times, I'm always amazed at the amount of suffering that Job went through, and his humility before God in the midst of it.

But I wonder if Job would rather have not had his faith tested in such dramatic fashion. I mean, when you go through some trial or trouble and someone makes a comment like, "God must love you or trust you an awful lot to let you go through all this", don't you sometimes want to say, "Thanks, but I'd rather He didn't love or trust me quite as much"?

Or am I the only one who thinks that way sometimes??
