I am thankful for my trials.
Say what?! I know. In the midst of them, it’s hard to say it. I wish there were another way. For whatever reason, maybe they’re meant for our refinement or maybe so we enjoy the victory all the more, we go through situations less than ideal. Maybe our trials serve to show that apart from God, we can do nothing.
James 1: 2-4
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
So, here’s to considering it all pure joy. A sign you’re on the right track. You’re being refined. And when your time comes – you’ll be ready & lack nothing.
Thanks for reading my 30 Days of Gratitude & for being a part of my journey. May we live lives of thankfulness.
