James 1:2-4 consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
I don’t know about you, but I know I have faced some very difficult trials in my life. Sometimes I’ve been to that point where I just ask myself, What else could go wrong? How much more can I possibly take?
Ladies, I struggle. When I’m facing challenges in life, I tend to forget to focus on God because this life can be so distracting. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the pain and lose perspective. This verse helps me to remember how God shapes us while we are persevering through the tough times.
