Trials *James 1:1-8

2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
Lord, we come before You and ask for Your grace and mercy in every trial and situation that comes our way. Grant us wisdom, knowledge, and discernment in dealing with others. Help us to persevere with a good attitude. Keep us from being deceived. Reveal Your truth to us and help us to walk in it. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Easy Way

If we take the easy way
it will cause much decay
From God we will stray
It will not be okay
Some might say
O well, hey
just go play
They will try to sway
but if you do, you’ll pay
If you feel like you’ll fray
just simply go pray
Why not pray today
Better yet pray every day
Don’t wait until May.
