My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. (James 1:2-3, NKJV)
"I'm sorry, but if your mom doesn't improve, she'll have to be removed." "Your friend only has a few monts." "You will no longer have a job in 30 days." I'm sure we all know someone in each of these situations. And I'm sure that we all have people in our lives that when we watch them go through trials, we're just amazed at the strength they portray. We wonder how in the world they can be so strong in what is the darkest time in their life. I can tell you where that strength comes from. That strength comes from the Lord. It comes from them knowing that though what they're going through is painful, they have their focus on God. Their attitude is, "Lord, though I'm hurting,I'll go through this if You want me to." If it makes them stronger in Him, they're willing to go through it. What is it today you're going through that although you're hurting, you're willing to say to the Lord I'll go through this if You want me to?
Dear Lord, I pray for each reader. I pray You'll give her the grace she needs to make it. When she can't take another step, let Her feel Your presence. In Jesus Name, Amen
