Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way. (James 1:2-4 The Message)
My friend, Jeanie Kelley, provides us with some words to munch on over at her blog. Her real life struggles return us to the heart of the matter. Her tenactity to trust makes me think of gardening. We buy our baby plants at the nursery or in my case some wonderful friends gifted me with seedlings from their winter greenhouses. We replant them trusting the growing process to produce good fruit.
Jeanie does the same thing in her life when she faces trials; she replants her faith in our trustworthy God. Thanks for the encouragement, friend.
