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. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4 New International Version
Reflecting back on my life, I see that is was in my most difficult and painful times that they were a blessing to me. For it was in those times that were the most enlightening times. Times of burning off that which was counter productive to being an obedient servant of Christ.
As well, it was because of those times that I can relate to and help others when they are going through their trials and tribulations.
Although they surely were not enjoyable at the time I gratefully thank Jehovah now for those blessings.
So although the storms may be a raging in your life now, have faith and believe Jesus is burning off your dross and molding you to be a true child of Jehovahs.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for the incredible work You have so patiently and wisely preformed on me on Your potters wheel and in Your furnace. I understand now the marvelous work You were doing in molding me to become more intimate with You and more of an obedient son. I give my deepest gratitude for this divine work in the name of he who molded His disciples so patiently wisely and gracefully Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
