James 1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
As our family constantly encounters trials (of many kinds - see previous blog post) it is overwhelmingly evident that this testing of our faith produces perseverance. God is ALWAYS good to us, He is constantly shaping us, His will is being done in our lives. I am joyful. Amen.
