Endurance brings the prize
James 1:2 Consider it joy my brethren when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
Endurance produces the prize - being perfect and complete - lacking in nothing. These are laws of nature. We see it in the butterfly and the chrysalis. Strength comes from struggle.
I'm so glad to be reassured that (V17) every good thing comes from the Lord. He IS light and cannot change.
Lord, keep me focused on the prize and not on the hardships. Let me count it joy to be getting so strong for you.
See my post on my business blog to see the story behind the butterfly.
