3/6/18 Pure Joy

Good morning healing team!

Cold raining days are behind us and time to enjoy sunny days. So there should not be any stress right? It does not matter if it is sunny or raining, stress is all around us.

James 1:2-4
“2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

Your muscle get stronger if you stress it. It goes the same for your faith. Your faith gets stronger if you stress/challenge your faith. More trails you go though with faith in God, your faith will grow stronger in Him. Stronger the faith you have, you can  endure more trails in Him.

I want to live happy and stress free. It make sense to avoid stress to live stress free. However, life is very interesting. More I try to avoid stress/struggle, I find myself in the middle of it.

So, I say, why not enjoy GOING THROUGH my stress today?
Proverbs 3:5-6
“TRUST in the LORD with all your heart, and lean NOT on your OWN understanding, in ALL your ways acknowledge HIM and He shall direct your paths.”

We all are going to face stress today, in fact, haven’t we face a few stress already? Just acknowledge HIM as the Lord, may not make sense to give up your control however trust HIM with all your heart, He shall show you what to do with it.

Don’t we get stress because things are not going our way? God has a plan for each of us and things tend to go according to His plan.

Have a great day!
