Count It All Joy - Even In The Hard Times.
You know what's one of the hardest things in life?
Being happy in difficult times.
How are we supposed to have joy when things aren't going our way?
It's hard. It's challenging.
It can be nearly impossible to smile through our hardest days.
But it isn't impossible.
The Bible says that the testing of our faith produces patience. James 1:5 goes on to say "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him."
God's desire is for us to be patient. To be happy. To know that the testing of our faith is going to make us stronger.
God is always with us, and if we trust in him, then he will give us the joy that we long for. He will bring us through the difficult times with grace, and he will make us even better because of our hard days.
