Count It Joy

“…My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing….”                       – James 1:2-4 (KJV)

No matter how hard we seem to try, have you ever noticed we can’t escape the trials and temptations we go through? The trials we go through, even though they’re hard to endure, they develop both endurance and patience within us. We need to let these be developed in our lives, so that we, ourselves, may be fully developed. I know it’s not real joyful going through trials, trials are never joyful, but if we look beyond the trial and understand the purpose of it and what God is trying to accomplish in us through them, we can consider it joyful!
