Thought to share: don’t become angry, frustrated, discouraged or disappointed when problems, difficulties, trials or set-backs come your way. Don’t let them throw you for a loop. Understand they are a part of life. Expect to encounter them. Instead of throwing a temper tantrum or a pity party, rejoice! Celebrate the opportunity to see MY hand at work in both you and your circumstances. Savor the experience of encountering ME and seeing the supernatural. This perspective will enhance your experience and change your outcome!
James 1:2-4 (TPT) My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.
Romans 5:3-5 (TPT) But that’s not all! Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope. And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us!
