A challenging verse for me to deal with is James 1:2-3
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.
Whenever I’m facing trials, obstacles, or challenges… joy is usually the furthest emotion from my mind and heart. I’ve tried repeating the verse and even breaking it down to just “Count it all joy!” However, it seems that I only get it long after the moment in hindsight.
I was just browsing through YouTube and came across this incredible story of Counting it all joy!
This couple truly cherished their gift from God and counted every single day a blessing. I think most would’ve been frustrated with God, but they counted it all joy!
