Bible Verse: James 1:2-4

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”

Reflect and Respond:

What in your life is building your endurance today? How does this perspective change your level of hope?


Father of all hope, I believe that through You, my trials are tremendous opportunities for growth. Help me to stand strong and learn from You through these lessons. May my joy in You grow in all things. Amen.

Thank you God for this message on this particular day. Although the trial that has just now surfaced is nothing compared to the pain, suffering and death You went through; I am weak and anxious. But I prayed to you and pray to you now for help in remaining faithful to You and steadfast. Help me to be truthful and righteous no matter the consequences. I beg that although we must accept the consequences of our actions, that You will not abandon me/us and that You will have mercy on us; that You will forgive us and grant us Your grace. These precious gifts I ask of You I do not deserve. But I cry out to you oh merciful God and repent. Please help us and I ask Your Spirit be with us through this trial and throughout the remainder of our lives. God please help us. Amen! I ask whoever sees this post—-please pray for that the Almighty One and Only True God will cover us with His glorious mercy.
At 76 I can attest to this Truth!! Thank you Jesus!
God help my husband and I to see our problems in adifferent way. To know that you have plans for us not to destroy us but to make us grow in faith. Amen
Amen! Thank you for reminding me of this blessed assurance today! Lord, thank Your for reminding me today that my challenges/trials have purpose; nothing is wasted. Help me to see them as growth. Strengthen and help me to endure. In Jesus' name. Amen!
Trails make us strong
Jesus enables us to endure and overcome!
