Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing - James 1:2-4 NASB
I agree with what the Word says that, without trials, we are incomplete. Did you ever notice that you grow the most when there is a crisis? It is so easy to moan, groan, grumble and gripe. But listen to what the word says, consider it all joy when trials come along. If you have 2-week faith, sure enough, you will get a 4-week test! In both a good outcome and a bad outcome, you emerge stronger and ready for that next test. As you have read from me before, life is an adventure and everything revolves around attitude. Joy is a choice! Guard your heart, for out of it flow the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). Do not give the devil an opportunity to steal your joy (Ephesians 4:27).
Yours in Christ,
