My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can!
For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. (Jam 1:2-4)
We’ve all been there – WHEN WILL THIS ALL END?!?
The thing is, it’s not the problem that hurts us, it’s the fact that we (so easily) quit in the process.
There’s a great song playing on Christian radio right now by Michael W Smith that shows how GOD is BIGGER than whatever is set against us:
… It may look like I’m surrounded
But I’m surrounded by You
It may look like I’m surrounded
But I’m surrounded by You…! X
