The Blessing of Trials

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. – James 1:2-4

In life we face trials of many kinds.

Trials, troubles, challenges... are part of the forward movement of life.

Sometimes it’s the toughest thing to do the right thing when everything is going wrong. 

To remain graceful in ungraceful situations. To carry the burdens of others when we’ve got our own to carry. To remain hopeful when all hope is fading. To be kind, to be thankful. To do what Jesus tells us to do.

This is where our faith is tested. In this video I talk about the blessing that is in the trials of life when we lean in to trust God and cast our burdens on Jesus knowing that He truly cares for us.
