1 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
2 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
You probably didn’t wake up today wishing God would give you some problems to handle, but sometimes that’s the way He works. Throughout God’s Word we are reminded that the “trying of your faith” is a precious thing. God is wanting to spend some close special time with you, that more than likely would never happen, if things were good. Patiently and persistently call upon the Lord. That’s how your heart can find “joy” in the midst of hard times.
