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

    oh my goodness Karen. The timing on this is really scary. I am so there right now, and I actually went to read today’s posting just to see what God had to say to me, and I can’t believe the verses you cited and your words of wisdom for ME!! In fact, I had JUST seconds before sent an email to a friend complaining of it all, and joking that I wanted to go back to Florida but this time stay there for good!! I am not kidding!!! Thank you so much.
