Numbers 17&18, Psalm 55, Isaiah 7, James 1

“I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!  I would fly away and be at rest – I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.”  Psalm 55:6-8

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”  James 1:12

Life is hard.  The challenges ebb and flow.  How often, when difficulties abound…do I, like the Psalmist wish to “fly away and be at rest”!

Father,

Help me see the trials of life as an opportunity to turn to You for your strength and grace and to use your resources to persevere.  – Karen
