Standing under Trial

BibleGateway.com: A searchable online Bible in over 100 versions and 50 languages.
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


Systems fail under stress. This is true for motor vehicles, mechanical devices, computer systems, systems of government, etc. The true test of a system is what it can do under load, under duress, under stress, and under TRIAL.

Our commitments fail when we allow ourselves to become depressed & discouraged in the face of challenges and unpleasantness. God, grant us enough of Jesus in us to get us over that hump, to a point where we are effective even when we are suffering.
