Food for the Soul ~ James 1:12

We have been going through the book of James recently at church. What a wonderful book of insight and practical applications! We have also endured a few trials this summer. While I doubt that anyone would actually enjoy testing or difficult circumstances, I can honestly say that I have a new appreciation for them.
I have seen first hand how faith grows through difficult times. But more than that, the trials have given us perfect teachable moments with our kiddos that might not have had the same impact had we not walked through the fire together.  I encourage you, if you are in the middle of a trial, to persevere.  Don't waste your time asking, "Why me?" Instead, seek to find a purpose in it that glorifies God in the middle of it. Sometimes it doesn't make any sense at all and you may not know how the Lord will use it in your life. During these times, trust the Father. His every purpose is for your good and His glory. Praying you remain steadfast in your faith this week!
