“Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.”
James 1:2-4 CSB •••••••••••••••• There are times where we may not have the words to properly express the difficulties we face but I am grateful for scripture that serves as a reminder that every difficulty should be seen as a benefit & not a burden. We grow through hard times & as the verse says we grow in our ability to endure, helping us toward being made complete in Christ. Hard times are good times with Jesus because they lead to a character in us that we will need in the good or bad times we’ll face in the future. For everything Jesus allows me to endure, I am grateful.
