Pure Joy???

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance."
How is it possible to have pure joy in the midst of trials? Sure hypothetically you could try to look on the bright side; seeing that those trials will make you a better person. But, honestly I am not sure that I have had really PURE joy during the circumstances of a trial. I know that I have tasted joy during trial, but for the most part I have only been worried, angered or sad during the trials I have faced. More thoughts to come...
