Why do Golf balls have dimples?

When they first manufactured golf balls, they made the covers smooth. A certain young man, who was having severe financial difficulties, loved to play golf. He did not let the fact that he had only one old, beat up golf ball, keep him from playing. The men he was playing gold with had new, smooth, shiny golf balls. As they played, it was discovered Pete’s ball got a lot more distance and went straighter than the smooth balls.

Today, all golf balls are manufactured with dimples all over the covers. With these rough spots, the ball goes further.

So it is with life. It takes some rough spots in your life to make you go the farthest, to bring the best out in you.
12 Ways to Develop a Positive Attitude, Dale E. Galloway, page 56

James says that we are to,

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Your dimples and rough spots are building you into
a person of perseverance
Let that perseverance take hold of you and make you into the person that God wants to recreate.
Think of this when you are experiencing;
pain and prejudice
grief and godlessness
anger and anguish
hatred and heated discussions
financial difficulties and friendship issues
selfishness and sinfulness
weeping and wishing
loss and loneliness
Thank you for the rough spots in my life. They help me see you more clearly and give me the perseverance to go the distance. I want to cling to you and what you are doing instead of my circumstances. Remind me through your word how to persevere.
