In His Word Wednesday

Today is In His Word Wednesday, and although I don't have the appropriate banner on my site yet, I wanted to participate anyways:

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the teasting of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Our family has had many trials in the last year. This verse has been playing on my mind a lot in recent months, as I try to count it all joy. I think that God is working a lot on my patience lately, and I feel honored that He loves me enough to do so. I can't wait until the day when I can truly say that I am perfect and complete, and lacking nothing. I can be excited to know through all of these trials that God is producing patience in me that will make me more like Christ. Lord I pray that you will continue to help me to find joy in my various trials, and help me to show those around me including my children how a child of yours should respond when put through difficult circumstances. Help me to respond as Job did....though you slay me, still will I follow you!


  1. Yes it can be hard to be joyous during trials but it makes it so much easier when you look at it that way! Trials are a good thing.

    Glad to find your blog! Thanks for linking.

    If you want the banner just right click on it and save it to your computer. Then you can just add the pic like you would any other.
    feel free to email me if that doesn't work!

  2. Such a great verse! Your faith during the last year is a testimony to all! I'm not sure I could have been so strong. We're continuing to pray for you and your Dad.

  3. Thanks Megan...I tried it and it worked. Not sure what happened to my brain that I didn't figure it out earlier...but better late than never right?? I'll be sure to attribute it back to you next time!
