"Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have it's perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing." -James 1:1-2 AMP
The trials, storms of life, obstacles, and new territory all give us an opportunity to grow weary. But we are called to count it as joy!
Trials test our faith. Tests help us solidify our knowledge before moving on to a new chapter where we get to keep building precept upon precept.
So I pray this piece would remind you that if you're in a trial period it means your faith has the chance to grow even stronger! Your endurance is growing, leading to spiritual maturity. Developing in you until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking!
