More. Joy. We all crave it. But where does it come from and how do you find it?
“Consider it pure joy whenever you face trials…because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” James 1:2
It seems like such a dichotomy. Joy and Difficulty. But God promises that He wastes nothing. He can use everything to reveal His nature and to grow your character.
If you’re facing a challenging situation today, you can trust that God will be with you and work through this season for your good and His glory. That’s why you can have faith and joy as you walk through it.
If you’re carrying a heavy load today, keep walking. If you’re facing a difficult decision, do the right thing. When you’re tested, persevere. That’s where joy comes from. What a neat “honoring” of the really difficult times in our life…God uses it to produce something beautiful. JOY. – Sandi
