Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds. James 1:2
What it means: We WILL go through hard times but seeking, loving and ultimately trusting God’s plan will make you stronger through it. Jesus craves our love, ALWAYS! Check out my post on choosing joy for more on this topic.
Prayer: Lord, help us crave you in the hard times. It is so easy for us to ask for what we desire or pray when things are good. When it comes to trusting you, we fail too often. I pray to release our human shackles and create a trust filled with pure JOY in all my trials. I love you, I need you and I trust you. Amen.
