Google+ 10/16/12 Great Trials God!

James 1:2-3


Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trails of many kinds,

because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.


Read this passage several times! 

Consider this thought...How much have you learned in your life during blissful times? 

Personally, I have learned very little. 

I find that most of the lessons God has taught me have come during the most turbulent days of my life.  

All of the troubles I have encountered in my life have come from poor choices

And exercising my "free will" that was given by God, incorrectly. 

God in His infinite grace and love has used these times to teach and instruct. 

The next time you feel complete desperation, ask yourself this question...

What is God trying to teach me? 

If your experience is like mine, your trials will become a blessing,

 Your faith will increase,

And in Christ Jesus you will persevere.
