Thought of the Day !!

Whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character and ready for anything.
                                        James 1:2-4 (NLT)

Trials and trouble that come our way can be thought of as building blocks.  They make up who we are.  Or maybe I should say how we handle them defines us.  When there's a difficult time in your life, you are surely not going to laugh and jump for joy because there's something wrong.  But you can look back at these occurrences and see how you can grow from them.  Remember that God is always at work teaching us if we will just listen.  And it's during our own failures and the times we seem to hit bottom that we not only need God the most, but that we can learn the most.  

In the love of Christ,
