the book of James is a book that I have grasped tightly to in my life. To count it all joy even in the midst of trials is not easy, but James instructs us to do just that. This takes great faith that our pain will indeed produce great purpose if we so let.
YES! We fall down but we get back up! Whenever we learn how to trust God in all circumstances we are able to easier count everything as joy, even the hard times. We are able to do this because we not only trust God but we know that he is growing us and strengthening us through life’s trials and tribulations.
