“Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its effect, that you may be perfect and complete and lacking in nothing.”
It doesn’t take any talent to become angry when things don’t go your way. The real test of maturity and faith is to remain calm, centered and focused, especially when met with seemingly insurmountable obstacles. You will find, with time, that by greeting situations with an open mind and an open heart, that you are cultivating compassion and spreading His love. The more joyous and open your response to any situation, the easier it is to move through. It is by seeing His perfection in everything that we become perfect, complete,and lacking in nothing.
MY SWEET AND GRACIOUS FATHER, THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING YOUR GRACE AND LOVE TO MOVE ME THROUGH ANY SITUATION WITH EASE, CONFIDENCE AND JOY. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE TOOLS I NEED TO CREATE YOUR KINGDOM HERE ON EARTH SO THATI MAY SHARE YOUR JOY! AMEN!
