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 – screaming WHEN WILL THIS ALL END?!?
The thing is, most of us focus on the problem, and we so easily 'forget' to factor in that GOD is here 'with us', trying His best to lead us through this minefield!
I'm writing this, and a great song comes to mind by Michael W Smith that shows how GOD is bigger than whatever is set against us:
… It may look like I’m surrounded by the enemy, but everything is actually surrounded by You.
Shout it out! It may look like I’m surrounded, But I’m surrounded by You…!
