Joy in the Trials

After a really terrible and stressful day at work, a wonderful friend reminded me of these comforting words of God. I know I'm not the only one being thrown into the fire these days, so I thought I would share. May we persevere in what God has placed before us to refine us, bringing all glory to Him! I hope these words encourage you as they did me!

“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. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1:2-5
