It is written, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” (James 1:2-3) Child, I meet you where you are. Because I am always here. Have you forgotten how close I am to you? We are inseparable. Take comfort in this. Relinquish your attempts to control your day’s direction. Let Me lead you. This will not only relieve your frustration, but it will also increase your faith.
Trials are an opportunity; a blessing. A chance for My power to be on display. A chance for My will to be done. When things don’t go as you imagined, hoped, or planned, consider this: My thoughts and plans are higher than yours. And I turn ALL things to good for you. This is your joy, My promise to you, which has already been fulfilled through My Son, Jesus Christ. It is finished.
