1 Nephi Chapter 22, verse 17*:
"The righteous need not fear...they shall be saved, even as by fire."
This is pretty much guaranteeing that if we are righteous, we will face trials--we will go through fire. That in order for us to be saved we must be refined, as by fire, through our trials.
So even (or especially) if we are doing everything right, we can expect a little heat.
Or a lot of heat.
And we can know as we are sweating, and burning, and changing, and crying, and praying, and hurting, and growing, that we are being strengthened. And purified. And tested. And saved.
