"CONSIDER IT PURE JOY, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WHENEVER YOU FACE TRIALS OF MANY KINDS." JAMES 1:2
Let’s face it, life can throw some pretty crazy curveballs at you. It’s easy to resort to your natural tendencies— stress, frustration, disappointment, even anger. However, God’s Word tells us to COUNT IT ALL JOY! (James 1:2)! Easier said than done? Absolutely. But is it worth it? Without a doubt. Let’s read what MSG version says in further context: “Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” Other versions of this scripture even say, “you will be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” That’s a huge promise and God doesn’t waver on His promises. Not a single ounce of suffering is wasted in God’s economy, so you might as well COUNT IT ALL JOY, friends.
