Not Always Easy

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 (MSG)

Life is going to bring challenges. We will feel pressure. We will face problems and struggles, but we need to realize that the tests we face builds our faith. It gives us the opportunity to show the greatness of our God. It allows God to make us complete. He uses the situations we face to make us more like Him.
