DAILY VERSE

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.

James 1:2-3

 

DEVOTION

I have to be honest, waiting is extremely hard. My faith may not waiver, but boy does the anxiety and doubt set in sometimes. I know God is doing something big, but when the test spans a period of years, it can weigh heavy on you. This is what I accepted though. Following Christ will involve many bumps and bruises. It’s the back roads and bumpy trails of participation in God’s purposes that perfects and purifies.
