In the midst of the chaos...
Life around here is not always beautiful.
It is not always picture perfect.
There are days I feel tired and lonely.
There are moments of despair.
But I grab onto the hope that Jesus gives in the book of James.
"Count it all joy when you fall into various trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience."--James 1:2
God knows this life isn't easy. He knows we will all have trials. He calls us to be joyful in the midst because if our hope is in Him we can trust that we are not alone and that He will help us through the most difficult days, wipe away our tears, and be our strength.
Today, I will count it all joy.
