pure joy

I sat down this morning to spend some time in the Word. It usually works well when I just open to a page and read. Today was no different. There are so many people suffering in trials of all kinds. Just when I feel like whining I read this…”Consider it pure joy when you face trials…” It says here to ask for wisdom but when you ask you must believe and not doubt… James 1:2-9


So the challenge today is to find joy in the trial. It may take some time but the joy will be evident after the sting subsides. It is so hard to be in the midst of a trial and see God. It is in the hindsight that we can sometimes see the work of His hands. I am going to try harder to see the hand of God in the middle of the trial.
