Scripture: James 1:1-18
Much of the difficulty and trials we go through and face in life, we can look back on with joy, in no small part because we made it through, God brought us through. We cannot get to the end without the journey, without the stumbles, without the hardships, without the trials and misery. We cannot get there without the growth, without the wisdom that comes through these trials.
We have a destination but we aren’t there yet. But we do have the joy of seeing where the Lord has brought us through and grown us.
