Want to be complete??????

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

James 1:2-4

Mature.

Complete.

Not lacking anything.

These words and phrases all sound so attractive until we read what it takes to reach them…..

Trials of many kinds.

Testing of our faith.

Perseverance finishing its work.

Today, as you face difficult moments remember this:

You are on a journey away from immaturity and incompleteness.

Allow God to lead down winding, uncertain roads…

so that you can reach the end in wholeness and maturity!

Praying for you today,

    Oh I love that! I am not loving the trials but knowing where the journey leads….THAT is good news.

  2. And praying for you too. Oh those trials how they hurt so much, but it’s that perseverance that helps with the struggle. I will also pray as you journey down the road this weekend on your walk for Nick’s cause. Sandy
